Commenting on the Inspection Report on Polmont Young Offenders Institute published today, Scottish Liberal Democrat Justice spokesperson Alison McInnes MSP said: "Brigadier Monro is right to highlight the great potential for HMYOI Polmont to make a real difference in transforming young offenders' futures."

The North East MSP continuned: "Education and constructive activity in prisons are crucial to help reduce reoffending. It's important that the government and the prison dervice now act on all the report's recommendations as soon as possible so we can ensure that more young offenders leave prison with a better chance to turn their lives around."
