Helen secures promise of better controls over prison education contractors

This afternoon I asked the Justice Minister to respond to concerns expressed by Deerbolt Prison Governor about the lack of local control over contractors. The Governor had spoken to me about the difficulties that prisons have in challenging unreliable contractors following the centralisation of control by this government

We know that a good education service in prison reduces re-offending so I am pleased that the Minister is finally listening and I will be monitoring his promise to give more control to prisons to deal efficiently with unreliable education contractors.
