The Times Letter regarding the prison population with Ken Clarke and Jacqui Smith:

Dear Sir

The recent violent unrest at HMP Birmingham is a wake-up call for this country. 

Our prisons have become unacceptably dangerous places, with a 31 per cent increase in assaults in the last year alone. Every three days a prisoner commits suicide.  

The three of us know, having served in different capacities in different governments, that all governments, of whatever political persuasion, have failed to grasp this nettle for far too long.

Since Michael Howard coined the phrase ‘prison works’ in 1993, the prison population in England and Wales has nearly doubled to more than 85,000. Yet almost half of adults are re-convicted within one year of release from prison. So the system isn't serving victims of crime or properly protecting our communities either.

We believe that an escalating prison population has now gone well beyond what is safe or sustainable. To restore order, security, and purpose to our jails, Ministers should now make it their policy to reduce prison numbers. 

We want to see the prison population returned to the levels it was under Margaret Thatcher, herself no ‘soft touch’. That would mean eventually – not overnight, but safely over the course of several years – reducing prison numbers to around 45,000. 

If the tide is not turned soon, the prisons crisis will do untold damage to wider society.
