Commenting on today's report by the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee into Transforming Rehabilitation, Peter Dawson, Director of the Prison Reform Trust said:

"No one should be surprised that a rehabilitation revolution is struggling to get off the ground in our overcrowded, unsafe local prisons.

Transforming Rehabilitation was always a complicated way to solve the problem of high re-offending rates by short-term prisoners. The best solution remains to punish these people in the community."
