Appalled at latest prison release figures


News | Community

Local MP Stewart Jackson has today expressed his severe concern at recent figures (published by the Ministry of Justice on Wednesday 31st October) that show that, since June, 176 prisoners have been released early from HMP Peterborough.

The Conservatives are opposed in principle to early release, and at the recent Party conference committed to ending the scheme by the creation of emergency accommodation funded through savings from scrapping the ID card scheme.

On hearing the figures, Stewart commented: “This situation is frankly a disgrace.

“Because of its incompetence, this Government is now allowing scores of criminals to pour on the streets of Peterborough long in advance of the end of their sentence.

“Ministers need to halt this policy with immediate effect”.

 

Stewart Jackson was elected in May 2005 to represent the Peterborough constituency in the House of Commons. To find out more about him, his views and activities, visit his website at www.stewartjackson.org.uk
