Bridget Phillipson hardly ever rebelled against their party in this parliament
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, pursuant to the Answer of 25 November 2014 to Question 215302, whether he plans to commission external (a) consultants and (b) accountants to plan the five year investment.
What steps he is taking to reduce reoffending.
Probation works best when the service has close relationships with prisons, councils and others, but under the Justice Secretary’s reforms is there not the real risk that police intelligence will not be shared with the new companies? Not only will that put at risk the tackling of reoffending, but it also runs the risk of jeopardising public safety.
