PCS UNION REPORT - AN ALTERNATIVE VISION FOR PRISONS

That this House notes the new report, An Alternative Vision for Prisons, from the Public and Commercial Services union which draws on its members' experience of working in prisons; further notes the report's recommendations for strengthening the purpose of prisons as places of reform and rehabilitation to help offenders turn their lives around; believes that giving prisoners meaningful work and training plays an essential part in rehabilitation and reducing reoffending; further believes that HM Prison and Probation Service instructional officers are best placed to deliver training workshops that are tailored towards prisoners' individual needs; considers that, as part of a broader plan that addresses prison staff shortages and overcrowding, the report's recommendations will benefit both the prison system and society as a whole; and calls on the Government to adopt the proposals put forward in that report.
