Prisoners: Treatment and Conditions - Question (18 Jul 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, prior to the tenure of Chris Grayling as the Secretary of State, no prisoner serving a sentence of less than 12 months was subject to probation. Since then, anyone who has even served two weeks is subject to probation.

Edward Argar: I pay tribute to the work of Baroness Corston in her ground-breaking 2007 report, and indeed to the work of the right hon.

Prisons: Women - Question (3 Jul 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I, too, welcome the fact that the Government have abandoned their prison building programme in favour of women’s community centres.

His announcement that there will be five women’s centres rather than five women’s prisons was very welcome. Will the Minister confirm that these, too, are to be privately...

Privately Financed Prisons (27 Jun 2018)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...speaks of the prison population who have been in care, and I know he is well aware of the high proportion of women in the prison system who have been abused in other relationships and settings, but Baroness Corston pointed all that out 11 years ago, which led to the Labour Government setting up what were often called “Corston projects”, such as Eden House in Bristol East, which...
