Government’s plans to sell off the majority of the probation service to private companies was the subject of debate on Wednesday 30 October 2013.
Natascha Engel spoke out against this privatisation and along with other Labour colleagues questioned the Justice Secretary Chris Grayling, asking him how he will deal with the many problems the Bill would cause if passed into law.
Natascha has been working with local groups concerned about this matter, and with their help she will continue to pressure the Government on this issue.
