TICKETS AVAILABLE: The Prisoners Advice Service is having its annual debate later this month at the City law firm Lovells. It is part of the JusticeGap series and the second time PAS has teamed up with www.thejusticegap.com.
- You can read a conversation between Jonathan Aitken and Frances Crook promoting last year’s debate in the Guardian HERE.
- You can read about that event also in the Guardian HERE.
- If you want to come to this year’s event, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year’s debate will ask: is prison ‘too soft’ and does it ‘work’? and the debate aims ‘to sort the realities from the myths of prison life’.
The panel debate will again be chaired by Erwin James from the Guardian.
It will feature :
· Deborah Coles, co-director, INQUEST;
· Dr Ben Crewe, deputy director of Prisons Research Centre, Cambridge University;
· Rachel Halford, Director, Women in Prison;
· Leroy Skeete, ex-client of PAS;
· Lord Taylor of Warwick, Conservative peer; and
· Closing speech: Lord Ramsbotham, ex-Chief Inspector of Prisons
When: Monday May 28th, 630pm
Where: Hogan Lovells, Atlantic House, London EC1A2FG (www.hoganlovells.com)
Tickets: Tickets are free, but this year we are asking people to support PAS.
Booking: Book in advance by emailing email@example.com. We need your name; address; organisation & contact number. Max two tickets.
PAS (www.prisonersadvice.org.uk) is a charity providing free legal advice and information to prisoners. It is independent and receives no Home Office funding. On the night, there will be an opportunity to make a donation to PAS.
