Gov't to provide additional funds to improve conditions at lockups

Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the Government will be providing funds in the second supplementary estimates to improve conditions at lockups.
 
He made the disclosure during Tuesday's sitting of the House of  Representatives.
 
This follows the Prime Minister's tour of lockups and detention centres in Kingston, St. Catherine and St. James on Saturday, to get a first-hand look at the facilities and the systems in place.
 
Mr. Holness visited the Denham Town forward operating base, the Tamarind Farm detention facility and the Twickenham Park detainee processing facility, before visiting the Freeport lockup.
