Prisoners 'watching too much TV'


Prisoners in Scotland's jails are spending too much time watching TV instead of taking part in activities to cut reoffending, MSPs have warned.The parliament's justice committee said inmates need more of a "nine-to-five" working routine to prepare them for work on their release.Its concerns were raised in a report into "purposeful activity" behind bars.Scottish ministers say reconviction rates are at a 13-year low and recorded crime is at a 37-year low.
