Edwina recently sat on a panel discussing women in prison at the Conservative Party Conference. It was a fringe event organised through the criminal justice unit of the Centre for Social Justice.
Speaking today, Edwina said:
I was really pleased to sit on a panel discussing women in prison at the Conservative Party Conference, at a fringe event organised by the Centre for Social Justice.
Rose Mahon from the Nelson Trust, Kate Paradine from Women in Prison and Clare McGregor from Coaching Inside and Out all gave their impressions from the day. It was chaired by Rory Geoghegan from the Centre for Social Justice and there to address the issues was Dr Phillip Lee MP, minister for female offenders.
It was a well-attended event, it was a great opportunity to get this hugely important issue debated at the conference and to keep the pressure on the government to do the right thing.
