The queen's speech is one of optimism and opportunity, with driverless cars and spaceports making the final script, along with education, security and prison reforms.

The BBC has led with the prison reform proposals, with a change that's "not been seen since Victorian Times" .

The big area of ambiguity this creates is the new build building programme. Announced within the last year, with up to 9 mega-schemes proposed, does a switch from long-term incarceration to phased day and weekend release mean we don't need that vast investment?

With HMP Wrexham, the Government's newest prison costing well over £200m to build, could this mean a potential £1.8Bn of new building could be halted?
