Parliament’s out for the summer and although the news never stops the trusty team of volunteers who run this site need to (now and again).

But it will be back to normal service in a few weeks’ time. Until then we shall be bringing you the latest prison news round ups bi-monthly.

Weekly round-ups will resume during September, see you soon.

Parliament’s out! The House of Commons is in recess for the summer – and as we’re all volunteers, we thought we would do the same.

We will be back in a few weeks’ time and we already have plenty of exciting stories in the pipeline.

See you soon.
