NotesNews : In a scene that penal reformers had dreamt about for years, Michael "Prison Works" Howard was banged up in Brixton nick to dish out the gravy in the jail's canteen. The former Home Secretary whose policies are largely responsible for the present record prison population had been locked up at his own volition to sample life behind bars. To the disappointment of some of his critics, Mr Howard emerged from the prision gates at 7.30am yesterday caliming to have enjoyed a "very, very interesting experience." With 219 other volunteers, he had agreed to spend a single night in the jail as part of a unique event, which was first disclosed in The Independent last month. It is expected to raise one hundred thousand pounds for the macmillan Cancer Relief Charity. [Ian Burrell and Linus Gregordias, The Independent, 3rd October, 1998]
