Clause 98 - Miscellaneous amendments relating to release and recall
Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill
Helen Goodman (Bishop Auckland, Labour)
People in prison need the grant because they have no other resources. Many of them are homeless, and have no job or family to go to. I would have thought that all that was common knowledge, and that it was not worth disputing that this is a vulnerable group that does not have resources. We could do this small thing to address their needs, and I hope that the Minister will accept the amendment.
