Resignation promised if reoffending target missed

PUBLISHED May 13, 2004

The head of the new body which will amalgamate the prison and probation services today pledged to resign if he did not reduce reoffending by 10%.

Martin Narey, chief executive of the National Offenders Management Service (Noms), which will begin bringing together the prison and probation services from next month, vowed to quit if the high number of repeat offenders did not drop.
