should all prisoners serving over i year be sent out to somewhere cheap like india in to serve their sentences to keep running costs down then brought back at the end of their sentence. with usaul safe guards built in of human rights, 3 meals a day and a hours exercise]. i think in the long term it would save thousands and save tax payers money.

might have something to say about that. Why on earth should they be forced to look after our inmates? I suspect accusations of colonialism would be rife.

Not a bad idea. It would not only be cheaper, but it would be a greater deterrent to those `willing` to go to prison. Additionally it may well prevent visitors taking `illegal substances`, mobile `phones and other items considered (apparently) desirable these days to inmates.

As for the Indian government being unhappy; provided we paid the right sum I`m certain they would take the work on. India has taken much other work from other countries why not this which would aid our tax system.

Failing that perhaps the Americans who run prisons in Iraq and other countries .......!!!!

The Country that we sent them to then is now better off than we are.

I know 'Out Sourcing' is the buzz word at the moment for big business, but this would never work.
May be it will be the goverments last fanfare before a general election, sure to be a bullet in the head for Labour!
