Response to the consultation on the Prisons Strategy White Paper
4 February 2022
“The overarching vision of more people in prison compromises the proposals in the White Paper.
“The Howard League does not believe that day-to-day life in prison will be improved by performance measures which are published in a new way, or by faster punishments for people who break minor prison rules.
“The Ministry of Justice should instead prioritise a return to full regimes and measures to address the endemic unfairness, including racial discrimination, which persists throughout the penal system.”
