The Government’s response to the Justice Select Committee and Women’s Custodial Estate Review
In July 2013, the Justice Select Committee published the findings from its year-long inquiry that reviewed progress made since the Corston Report. The Ministry of Justice has now published the Government response to this report, setting out its intended approach to managing women offenders. Alongside this, the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) has published the Women’s Custodial Estate Review. This briefing will summarise the headline recommendations made within both of these documents.
