Briefing on the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill

27 May 2021

“This briefing provides some general comment on the overall tenor of the Bill’s punitive approach, before focussing on individual clauses within our sphere of expertise, primarily in Parts 7-11. Our comments are based on evidence gathered by the charity. This briefing also sets out an amendment on the use of remand to custody for a person’s own protection or own welfare tabled by Debbie Abrahams and Jackie Doyle-Price, co-chairs of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Women in the Penal System.”
