Indeterminate Sentence For Public Protection Prisoners

EDM number 1524 in 2017-19, proposed by Jo Stevens on 16/07/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Administration of justice and Prisons.

That this House expresses concern that too many men and women are trapped in the prison system with no fair prospect of release under the discredited indeterminate sentence for public protection which was abolished six years ago; expresses further concern that over 1,000 people who were released were recalled to prison mostly for administrative reasons; and calls on the Government to speed up the process for safe release, to ensure the resources to support people on release so they can resettle safely, to abolish the life licence and replace it with a fixed-term of supervision that ensures support for people on release and to severely restrict the power to recall to prison for IPPs.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
