Is There Momentum For Criminal Justice Reforms?

The government is abolishing the mandatory death penalty for 11 offences, and will put a cap on prison sentences between 30 to 40 years. What are the implications of this on the overall prison system, and what other reforms need to be implemented in tandem to improve the rehabilitation chances and welfare of inmates? We discuss this with our panel of experts.
