Invitation To Frances Crook To Visit HM Prison Oakwood

EDM number 906 in 2014-15, proposed by Julian Huppert on 23/03/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Administration of justice and Prisons.

That this House notes that G4S issued an invitation to Frances Crook, the Chief Executive of the Howard League, to visit HM Prison Oakwood; further notes that the Director of Custodial Services at the National Offender Management Service (NOMS), Ian Blakeman, decided that the visit would not be appropriate at the time given Ms Crook's comments about private prisons, and informed G4S that it should withdraw the invitation; expresses great concern that NOMS should seek to prevent this visit, especially given that G4S specifically invited Ms Crook; and calls on the Government to ensure NOMS allows the visit to take place and encourages scrutiny of the justice system.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
