POA Circulars

Prison Closures

Further to POA Circular 144/2013, please find attached a ‘standard letter’, which we would urge all POA members to send to their Member of Parliament.

The National Executive Committee calls all members to help the Union fight these closures and to prevent the Government’s ongoing policy to maintain prison overcrowding at current record levels. Calling on your MP’s is only one part of this campaign but it is vital that as many MP’s as possible are encouraged to sign this Early Day Motion.

If you are unsure of your MP’s name, or their contact details, you can find this information through the Link in Action Zone section of the POA website at www.poauk.org.uk.

Again, on behalf of the National Executive Committee, I urge all POA members to help the Union and support our Prison Service.


Yours sincerely


General Secretary
