TORY prison reforms are a “trojan horse for further cuts and privatisation,” TUC Congress heard yesterday.
Prison Officers Association leader Steve Gillan said the government had “fooled some of the general public” with its promise of a more humane approach to criminal justice earlier this year.
The programme was a centrepiece of David Cameron’s final Queen’s Speech, but new Justice Secretary Liz Truss stunned a Commons committee last week when she suggested it might not go ahead at all.
Mr Gillan said the announcement had only been “crocodile tears” and a “publicity stunt” to distract from £900 million cuts to the criminal justice system despite record numbers of deaths in custody and safety risks for staff and prisoners.
