Prison cuts may see reoffending rise, say MPs


Cuts to prison management services could lead to a rise in reoffending, an influential group of MPs has said.The MPs said staff cuts by the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) could result in less training and rehabilitation - which have been shown to reduce reoffending rates.The Public Accounts Committee praised NOMS for saving £230m last year, but warned further cuts may be difficult.Ministers said their plans would stop the "revolving door of reoffending".
