Con­sid­er­ing rad­i­cal re­form

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & world Update -

JUS­TICE Sec­re­tary ken Clarke sug­gested to­day that he was con­sid­er­ing a rad­i­cal re­form of prison pol­icy as part of a cost-cut­ting drive across Govern­ment. it costs more to keep an of­fender locked up for a year than it does to “send a boy to eton”. mr Clarke said: “Rather than just salami-slic­ing and say­ing ‘We can save a bit of money here or there there’ what i’m look­ing at is, in this case, sen­tenc­ing.”
