Bolton MP and former barrister Yasmin Qureshi welcomes Government plan to shake-up prison system


BOLTON MP and former barrister Yasmin Qureshi has welcomed Government plans to overhaul the prison system in the UK. During the Queen's Speech at the state opening of Parliament, Her Majesty outlined Government proposals for major reforms.The Prison and Courts Reform Bill could lead to satellite-tagged inmates being sent home on weekdays and re-offending league tables being published.New 'reform' prisoners could be opened, with emphasis on training, rehabilitation and education.

COMMENT: and perhaps Yasmin Qureshi can welcome a crack-down on drugs in Bolton too? Disappointed Mrs Qureshi that you don't reply to issues raised about rehabilitation and crime in your own town of Bolton!
