Let inmates fill staffing shortages: New Justice Secretary Dominic Raab wants firms who are short of workers to hire PRISONERS let out of jail for the day to plug the gaps

Prisoners should be hired by companies which are suffering from severe staff shortages, the new Justice Secretary has suggested.

Dominic Raab said that some of the record one million job vacancies across the UK could be filled by offenders who are allowed out on day release or have just finished their jail sentences.

He claimed that the radical move could help society as well as the economy – and aid the new employees in turning their backs on a life of crime.
