Cherie Blair pleads for jailed parents to be given more contact with families

PUBLISHED November 22, 2004

Cherie Blair will make an impassioned plea next month for young parents in prison to be allowed better contact with their families, to prevent their children becoming the next generation of criminals.

The leading QC and wife of the Prime Minister will warn that the cycle of crime will not be broken unless more is done to avoid the break-up of the vulnerable families of offenders.
