Criminal Justice Committee
Routine Photocopying of Prisoner Mail
Letter from the Cabinet Secretary for Justice and Veterans to the Convener, 23 September 2021
Russell Findlay MSP has recently wrote to me seeking an update on calls for the routine photocopying of prisoner mail in order to minimise the risk of psychoactive substances entering the prison estate.
This and the issue of mobile phone tampering were also raised during the Criminal Justice Committee session of 15 September and Justice portfolio Parliamentary Questions of the same day.
I attach the response to Mr Findlay which other Members of the Criminal Justice Committee may also find informative.
