Peter Kyle MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Victims and Youth Justice, responding to proposals for Parole Board hearings to be open to victims and the press, said:
“These proposals represent a solid step forward that would improve transparency in the parole process.
“However, piecemeal improvements like this are not enough. The government must take urgent action to deliver a comprehensive, meaningful, and enforceable strategy for victims’ rights.”
