Noble Solicitors discusses prison exchange policy
More than 30 "run-down and poorly-located" prisons should be replaced by 12 "super-jails" each with thousands of inmates, a report has said.
Ex-Ministry of Justice deputy director Kevin Lockyer said it could save £600m a year in operational costs alone.
The former prison governor carried out the report for right-leaning think tank the Policy Exchange.
Noble Solicitors Prison Law Department says "There has been talk of ‘super prisons’ for some time now and I would agree that they are needed. There is a common misconception that prison life is ‘easy’ or like a ‘holiday camp’. I have a number of clients in custody at the older establishments and the stories I hear never cease to surprise me. I do hope that the plans to build these newer establishments go ahead."
