Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what comparative assessment he has made of the number of prisoners serving life sentences in (a) the UK (b) EU countries; and if he will make a statement.
I have not made any such assessment. Life sentences are reserved for only the most serious offending.
