British Pounds Money

Late last year, the Prison Reform Trust’s advice and information service received a number of enquiries from people held in private prisons, regarding the cost of electronically transferring money into their prison account from families outside. Public sector prisons have also recently introduced such a service, however, unlike in private prisons this service is provided at no cost to either the sender or recipient.

In response, they approached Unilink, the provider of the Secure Payment Service, to discuss how the situation might be able to be improved for those held in private prisons. The PRT was pleased to find that following their approach to Unilink, they have agreed to reduce costs by an average of 20% after negotiating discounts with their suppliers.

Prisons Annual Report & Calculator

Commenting on HM Inspectorate of Prisons Annual Report 2018-19 published today (9 July 2019), Mark Day, Head of Policy and Communications at the Prison Reform Trust, said:

 

“Mechanisms to ensure greater transparency and accountability are welcome and may help to drive some improvements in our overstretched prisons. But unless ministers are also held to account for decisions which have led to the UK having amongst the highest incarceration rates in western Europe, and a prison system which is chronically overcrowded and where too many establishments are simply not fit for purpose, many of our prisons will continue to fall short of even basic standards of safety and decency.

Two new aircraft were delivered last week from Austria, joining two that received their UK registration markings in April. 

Work is underway for all four aircraft to achieve air worthiness and police operational certification - a process expected to take several months - before they can begin flying in support of police forces in England and Wales.
