The Comptroller and Auditor General was to do more work regarding Thornton Hall, the proposed prison in north county Dublin that cost €50 million but which remains incomplete. The Department indicated that it had established an expert group to consider the future of the site. The Department had installed sanitation in all the cells. Since the decision was taken not to go ahead, the media has reported that up to 800 prisoners are taking an action regarding the practice of slopping out. Could we have some clarification about what will happen?
