Prison officer strikes a failure of Government – Howarth

 Commenting on the wildcat prison officer strikes taking place at several prisons, Liberal Democrat Shadow Justice Secretary, David Howarth said: 

“Because of the unique position prison officers are in, the Government has a responsibility to ensure serious grievances are dealt with before officers feel they have no choice but to strike.

"Whatever the rights and wrongs of a particular strike action, the very fact that it has reached this point is a failure of Government.”
