HM INSPECTORATE OF PRISONS REPORT ON HMP FOREST BANK HM Inspectorate Of Prisons Report On HMP Forest Bank

 

Commenting on the findings of the HM Inspectorate of Prisons report on HMP Forest BankPeter Dawson, director of the Prison Reform Trust said:

 

“This report sums up the futility of the Prime Minister’s idea that you can build your way out of the prisons crisis. Forest Bank is a modern prison with a solid history of good local management. But 60% of the prisoners it holds are in overcrowded cells with half of them locked up during the working day. Unsurprisingly, violence and self-harm are common. It’s a similar story in other new prisons built over the last two decades, as the political addiction to imprisonment continually outstrips the willingness to provide the number of cells it requires.”
