PRT comment: ‘Time’

Reacting to the new BBC drama ‘Time’, Peter Dawson, Director of the Prison Reform Trust said:

“ ‘Time’ condenses a lot of experiences into one man’s story, but it is telling a fundamental truth about our prison system. Too many people—many of them very unwell—are being forced to live in overcrowded, dilapidated prisons. Years of political neglect have produced a system that makes life more dangerous both for those inside it and for the communities they will rejoin on release. This government, with its addiction to more prison, is making exactly the same mistake.”
