The Week in Justice - 12 Feb 2017

This was the week that Liz Truss re-structured the MoJ; replacing the National Offender Management Service with Her Majesty's Prison & Probation Service (from 1 April).

We also saw the launch of prison reform catalyst New Futures Network and should know more about the next stage of prison reform after Liz Truss' speech on Monday 13th.
