Move to ban smoking in prisons
Press AssociationInmates could soon be banned from smoking at prisons in England and Wales, the Ministry of Justice has said. A pilot scheme to monitor how prisoners react to the move is being planned by the government, but sites have not yet been chosen.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Justice said: "We are considering banning smoking across the prison estate and as part of this are looking at possible sites as early adopters."
The pilot scheme is expected to launch in the spring of next year, and if successful, the ban would be rolled out across all prisons within 12 months, the Times newspaper reported.
