Ian Lawrence, General Secretary of NAPO, the probation service union and professional association, in the second in a series of interviews about the MoJ’s probation reform programme: Transforming Rehabilitation.

Ian states that probation staff are not opposed to opening up the probation service to competition but argues that probation staff should be allowed to compete on a level playing field.

He sees current plans as rushed and misguided and likely to lead to a fragmented service for offenders.

He calls on the Justice Secretary to publish the MoJ’s own risk register for TR and confirms that NAPO intends to take industrial action to protest the changes and protect members’ interests.
