He questions the whole structure of TR, the speed of change and thinks that even the positive measure of providing support to short term prisoners is likely to result in increased levels of custody.

  1. Great stuff from Rob Allen – warning us it may get worse – as those in favour of focusing on rehabilitation would term ‘worse’ – if there is another ‘right wing’ government.

  2. Good analysis of the issues re Transforming Rehabilitation. There can only be a massive increase in the prison population as the chaotic under 12 months sentence people get breached for non-compliance. Much better to offer voluntary help to this group. As well as those in and out of the CJS people ike Chris & Vicky Huhne will get statutory intervention when they don’t need it.
