[2013] EWHC 3777 (Admin)

There had been a continuing failure by the secretary of state to make reasonable provision of systems and resources, specifically the reasonable provision of Extended Sexual Offenders Treatment Programmes, for the purpose of allowing prisoners serving sentences of imprisonment for public protection a reasonable opportunity to show the Parole Board, by the time of the expiry of their tariff periods or reasonably soon thereafter, that they were safe to be released. In that respect, the secretary of state was in continuing breach of the public law duty set out in R. (on the application of Wells) v Parole Board [2009] UKHL 22, [2010] 1 A.C. 553.

DC (Richards LJ, Irwin J)
