In response to Michael Gove’s announcement on prisoner book restrictions, Richard Mollet, Chief executive of the Publishers Association, said:

“Michael Gove’s relaxation of the restrictions placed on prisoners’ access to books is extremely welcome.  All the evidence points to access to books being a vital element in increasing literacy levels amongst prisoners; aiding rehabilitation and increasing job prospects when released.”
