Committee examines how having your mother in prison affects your rights

13 February 2019

The Joint Committee on Human Rights begins its inquiry into children whose mothers are in prison with its first public session.

How does having your mother in prison affect you and your rights?

Research suggests that only 5% of children with a mother in prison remain in the family home during their mother’s imprisonment; whereas most children with a father in prison remain with their mother.

Witnesses

Wednesday 13 February 2019, Committee Room 1, Palace of Westminster
