Anne Owers CBE, HM Chief Inspector of Prisons, and Kit Chivers, Chief Inspector of Criminal Justice in Northern Ireland, today conducted an unannounced inspection of the treatment and conditions of women prisoners at Hydebank Wood. Kit Chivers will be reporting their findings to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, the Rt. Hon. Paul Murphy MP, and the report of the inspection will be published early next year. The report is subject to the rules of Parliamentary privilege, so the Chief Inspectors cannot comment publicly on their findings until their report has been presented to Parliament.
