Stephen Brown says...

This is not the only problem with this bill. It's about supporting cuts, more privatisation and cutting staff. It also wants private companies involved in sentence management that's payable on results - a recipie for disaster if ever there was one. It also wraps up issues about how offenders are treated which focus too much on punitive rather than rehabilitation which could lead to greater re-offending. The Govt seems intent on ignoring its own Justice Ministry advice on this in pursuit of an ideological goal, so don't expect many Tory MP's to oppose it let alone understand its implications.
