Criminal justice organisations want new Titan prisons abandoned.

September 2, 2009

Government’s consultation on Titan prisons closes , the letter calls on
Jack Straw to focus on addressing the causes of the growing prison
population instead of pursuing an expensive prison-building programme….

….I suggest the signatories, see below, of the letter should go and live in the so called ’sink estates’ of our cities and see if they are of the same opinion a few months later.
