HM INSPECTORATE OF PRISONS INDEPENDENT REVIEW OF PROGRESS OF HMP BEDFORD HM Inspectorate Of Prisons Independent Review Of HMP Bedform

Commenting on the findings of HM Inspectorate of Prisons’ Independent Review of Progress report on HMP Bedford published on the 12 September 2019, Peter Dawson, director of the Prison Reform Trust said:

“It is no surprise that the prisons which most consistently fail to deliver decent, safe conditions are overcrowded, very often with prisoners on remand or serving pointless short sentences. Bedford, a 200 year old pre-Victorian prison, is just one of many examples. If it is serious about ending this scandal, the government must start by quitting its addiction to imprisonment.”
