SmokeFree Prisons

A WIN!!!

Smoke Free Prisons


SFT has been campaigning for smoke free prisons for ten years. This has finally and quietly been achieved with no fuss in February 2015, and no problems. Congratulations to Rene Hidding who supported the idea from 2006, Nick McKim who finally put the program into motion, and Dr. Vanessa Goodwin who with a well organised prison management team, implemented it.

Even civil libertarian lawyer Greg Barns finally supported it!
