Sentencers and sentenced References

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Women in the Penal System conducted an inquiry into the sentencing of women.

The inquiry received written evidence from charities, academics, women’s centres, a trade union and a Police and Crime Commissioner.

MPs and peers visited a problem-solving court and heard oral evidence from John Bache, the Chair of the Magistrates’ Association, and Dame Glenys Stacey, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Probation.
