Answered on

27 June 2022

The Prisons Strategy White Paper set out our ambition to introduce a fast-track adjudications system with rehabilitative interventions for lower-level offences.

We will complete a full impact and equalities assessment for this policy, and we will take the appropriate steps to ensure that prisoners with protected characteristics are not disproportionately negatively impacted by the changes.
