En­cour­ag­ing le­gal phones

Pick Me Up! - - EASY EAT -

In a con­tro­ver­sial move, phones will be in­tro­duced to in­di­vid­ual prison cells un­der a new £7 mil­lion gov­ern­ment ini­tia­tive. Min­is­ters say it will help to pre­vent il­le­gal mo­bile phones be­ing smug­gled in. Calls will be recorded and pris­on­ers will only be al­lowed to con­tact a se­lect few, pre-ap­proved num­bers. Main­tain­ing fam­ily ties was seen as key to re­duc­ing the chances of re­turn­ing to com­mit­ting crimes.
