The scheme under the Crime (Sentences) Act 1997 s.32 was compatible in principle with the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Art.5. Where a life prisoner was recalled to prison after a period on parole, reasons for the recall had to be given, even when they were obvious. Furthermore the reasons had to be given promptly; eight days for the receipt of such information was unreasonable.
