CIRC 150: LOCKDOWN IN ENGLAND

The restrictions announced by the Prime Minister on 31st October 2020, which affect England come into force on Thursday 5th November 2020.

The POA will work with HMPPS to ascertain what this means for our Prisons. Wales and Scotland already have their own measures in place.

HMPPS are liaising with Public Health England to seek advice and model the implications the restrictions will have in our Prisons.

We will inform members when we know how this affects us.

For and on behalf of the NEC.
