Last week MA National Chairman John Bache and Val Castell, a member of the Adult Courts Committee, gave evidence to the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Women in the Penal System at the House of Commons, as part of a new inquiry on the sentencing of women in England and Wales. The discussion focused on the sentencing of women in magistrates' courts, including the availability of appropriate community provision. A summary of the session will be made available in due course on the Howard League for Penal Reform website.
