The report of the Chief Inspector of Prisons has identified many problems. It would be surprising if incentives to induce good behaviour are likely to offer any kind of solution. Providing decent conditions in prison and credible rehabilitation programmes might offer some hope. Most prisoners enter prison almost completely illiterate and innumerate and certainly not able to do most jobs. They also have serious mental health and other personality problems. Under the present system these conditions remain unaddressed. Hence the huge rate of reoffending. We should really try some profound prison reform instead of rather silly initiatives which clearly will not work.
