an abomination in the 21st century Amanda Hamblin, chairwoman of the womens oakleys IMB, said: "We strongly believe that this arrangement should not proceed, that it is a contemptuous treatment of prisoners, and that it reflects badly on the prison service and oakley wingspan HMP Lewes." Lewes governor Eoin McLennan Murray said the prison would have preferred to follow the model of other wings and convert the oakley sunglasses on sale middle cell of three into a toilet shared by oakley half the inmates on either side, ridding the cells themselves of open toilets. The final decision is made by the Ministry of Justice which last year had to house convicted criminals in court cells and police custody cells because the nation's prisons were full. Mr McLennan Murray said: "Running the prison day to day on a decency agenda is a higher priority for me than the national prison population. "What they would argue is that if you are keeping prisoners in police cells and court cells the conditions there are even worse than where there is a refurbished cell where there is a toilet." Overall Lewes, which has capacity for 723 prisoners, was described as "a humanely managed prison which has some excellent features and provides a safe and largely decent environment".
Mr McLennan Murray said: "I welcome the IMB report. I think it highlights many positive aspects at the prison." The IMB raised other issues including whether prisoners are properly searched for drugs and mobile phones, and whether rehabilitation programmes for alcoholics were adequate.
