This month, the Conservative Justice Secretary had to ask Judges to issue judicial guidance restricting the number of people that should be given prison sentences because of overcrowding. Our criminal justice system is at breaking point after 13 years of cuts to police, courts and prison officer numbers. The prison estate is a mess. Prisons are overcrowded and have become breeding grounds for more crime rather than rehabilitation.
I challenged the Welsh Secretary on his government’s record on criminal justice in Wales.
