To move the following Clause—

 

         

“Assaults in prison (No.15)

 

In Section 247 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003, after subsection (2) insert—

 

“(3)    

Subsection (2) does not apply if the prisoner has assaulted a prison officer

 

during the course of their sentence.””

This new clause would mean that a prisoner serving an extended sentence under Sections 227 and

 

228 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 who assaulted a prison during that sentence would not be

 

eligible for automatic release after the requisite period.
