At the end of sitting weeks the Justice Committee publishes a brief summary of its activities in the form of a weekly update.
We met in private on Tuesday this week. We discussed our forward programme and the work we had coming up.
We also considered a number of letters that we had received from the Ministry of Justice and agreed to publish these letters on our website.
We then had private briefings from a number of organisations to inform our Prison Population 2022: planning for the future inquiry.
