21:33, Dec 18 2012

Christmas lunch behind bars will consist of roast chicken, roast potatoes, carrots and peas, with apple pie and custard for dessert, for the country's 8500 prisoners.

The meal will cost $4 per prisoner and is designed to meet basic nutritional needs without being lavish.

The sandwiches prisoners usually eat for lunch will be served for dinner instead.
