Julian Huppert on prisoner book ban ruling

Responding to the ruling that the prisoner book ban is unlawful, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson Julian Huppert said:

“We need education in our prisons. It’s vital from the moment people walk through the door they get the help and rehabilitation they need to ensure they don’t end up back behind bars.

“Simon Hughes in the Ministry of Justice has worked hard to make the case for ensuring all prisoners are able to receive the books they need, which Liberal Democrats believe is fundamental to creating a fairer society.”
