On Tuesday 23 November, the Justice Committee will begin taking oral evidence for its inquiry into Imprisonment for Public Protection (IPP) sentences, with a session focused on the experiences of prisoners serving the sentences and their mental health. Though IPP sentences were abolished in 2012, there are still more than 3,000 people currently in prison serving the sentence. The indeterminate nature of the sentence means prisoners do not know when they will be released.
