The main event this week was the launch of Her Majesty's Prison and Probation Service, the replacement for NOMS.
The MoJ published an infographic setting out a kind of mission statement for the new service with an emphasis on prison reform.
The Justice Committee also published an important report on prison reform, asking for more detail on governor autonomy and highlighting industrial relations with both governors and staff as a key stumbling block.
On the positive side, the New Futures Network is gathering steam in its inclusive work to be a catalyst for prison reform at a local level.
