Sadiq Khan: Probation plans are a 'recipe for disaster'
The Shadow justice minister, Sadiq Khan has said that government plans for an overhaul of the probation service in England and Wales could be a 'recipe for disaster' if things go wrong.
The plans will see low-risk offenders supervised by the private sector.
Justice Secretary Chris Grayling will unveil plans to let security firms and voluntary groups manage probation on a "payment by results" basis.
But Mr Khan doesn't believe this is the right solution.
