UK-Saudi Prisons Deal Dropped

LONDON - The Government has dropped a bid to provide services to the Saudi prison system.

The announcement, made today, comes after it emerged Justice Secretary Michael Gove had demanded that the deal should be cancelled, but was overruled by David Cameron and Philip Hammond. The issue was set to be debated in the House of Commons at 12.30pm today, following urgent questions from MPs.
