Sadiq Khan MP, Shadow Justice Secretary, commenting on the report by the Chief Inspectors of Prisons and Probation, said:

“This damning report by the independent Chief Inspectors of prisons and probation is a shocking picture of just how bad things have got in our criminal justice system over the last 3 ½ years. David Cameron came to office in 2010 promising a rehabilitation revolution yet today this is in tatters, with the Inspectors confirming this a failure. 

“The Government’s plans to recklessly privatise probation have been shredded. It’s time that Chris Grayling broke the habit of a lifetime, listened to the experts, and abandoned his dangerous and half-baked probation privatisation before he puts the public’s safety at risk.”
