Description
Summary:Lord Patrick Carter's Review of Prisons, published in 2007, proposed the construction of vast 'Titan' prisons to deal with the immediate problem of prison overcrowding, the establishment of a Sentencing Commission as a mechanism for keeping judicial demand for prison places in line with supply, along with further use of the private sector, including private sector management methods. Tackling prison overcrowding is a response to these controversial proposals.
