Probation Service Privatisation U-Turn

Back in October I posted regarding the government's plans to privatise the probation service.

Thankfully there's been a u-turn after criticism from judges, magistrates and more than 80 backbench Labour MPs.

The Home Office confirmed that plans to introduce a "mixed market" in the community supervision of 200,000 offenders will not be included in a police and justice bill to be published next week.

Perhaps this is an attempt to break free from the Soft on crime tag!
