[2002] EWCA Crim 519

When imposing sentences the courts had to take into account the impact on the prison system of overcrowding. It was of the greatest importance to the criminal justice system as a whole and to the public that only those who needed to be imprisoned were, and then for no longer than necessary.

CA (Crim Div) (Lord Woolf of Barnes LCJ, Rose LJ, Judge LJ)
