Supporting amendments to the Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill
Ahead of next Monday’s House of Lords Committee Stage debate, we’ve published two joint briefings on amendments to the Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill. The amendments would reform the IPP sentence; and introduce judicial oversight for a new power allowing the government to prevent automatic release.
Imprisonment for Public Protection
A joint briefing in support of amendments relating to the sentence of Imprisonment for Public Protection.
Amendment to the power to prevent automatic release
A briefing in support of greater judicial oversight for the proposed new power to give the Secretary of State authority to determine which prisoners can and cannot be automatically released.
