The Justice Committee also opened its inquiry into the disclosure of evidence in criminal cases.

There was also a sprinkling of good news with the prison population falling slowly, two positive prison inspection reports and an excellent new digital resource for prison visiting from PACT.

Finally, indefatigable Probation Chief Inspector Dame Glenys Stacey is taking on an inquiry into the post-Brexit farming inspection regime alongside leading HMI Probation.
