Prison Service

Asked what No.10 made of HM Inspector of Prisons comment that the Government had, ‘created an ark after the flood’ in response to calls to reform prisons, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that the HM Inspector also said that the significant improvements continued to take place in many key areas of prison life, she praised the prison service safer custody work, education and training provision, resettlement and health care. What was also important to recognise is that John Reid has agreed with her that there is still much work to be done. That is why in top of the 20,000 extra places he has asked for an additional 8,000 places. It is a mixed picture and the Government needs to work with people such as HM Inspector of Prisons to get it right.

  1. Can all those humane citizens out there who would like far better rehabilitation services for UK Prisioners please kindly make this known to our utterly loveable Uncle Tony?

    We would have done this ourselves – but we are busy with the landmark online campaign below at <a href="http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/AbolishGMC">http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/AbolishGMC</a&gt;
