Banning books in prison

Banning books in prison

It was recently revealed that prisoners in the UK have been stopped from recieving books as gifts from outside of prison. Books are a fundamental tool in education and the idea of a prison resctricting access to them for its inmates is in direct contradiction with the prison's duty of providing an environment conducive to rehabilitation.
