“Dostoevsky wrote that the degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons,” said Bishop Richard Moth of Arundel and Brighton. 

“It is the responsibility of all of us to tackle this situation. We call again on the government to move as quickly as possible on its reform agenda for our prisons.”
