Explanatory Memorandum to Prison (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) Order 2004

Membership of board of visitors for prison

Article 3 removes the statutory requirement, from section 10(4) of the Prison Act (Northern Ireland) 1953, for the Board of Visitors at each prison to include at least two Justices of the Peace amongst their number as it is no longer operationally necessary and is inconsistent with equality obligations.
