Justice Committee examines work of the Parole Board

18 October 2017

The Justice Committee examines the effectiveness of the parole system and the circumstances of people serving indeterminate sentences of imprisonment for public protection (IPP prisoners) . 

Following up the National Audit Office’s February 2017 report Investigation into the Parole Board, the Committee will be asking about measures taken by the Parole Board and the Ministry of Justice to improve the effectiveness of the Board and the parole system which it administers.

The Committee will also be asking about the particular circumstances of people serving indeterminate sentences of imprisonment for public protection (IPP prisoners) who have served more than their tariff, and about steps which the Parole Board and the Ministry have taken, and could take in the future, to address their situation.
