Week in Justice 10 December 2017

Bob Neill and the Justice Committee kept up the pressure on the MoJ over prison reform and safety with a Commons debate. Their message was amplified by two very critical prison inspection reports into Holme House and Wormwood Scrubs.

The Prison Reform Trust launched two reports: the first showing that many women are in prison for much less serious crimes than the ones that have been perpetrated against them; the second questioning whether the government's prison expansion plans are affordable.

Transform Justice also published a new report highlighting the alarming decline in the use of out-of-court disposals.

Look out next Thursday 14th for a hard-hitting annual report from Chief Probation Inspector Dame Glenys Stacey.
