Pat Ramsey has called for immediate action by the Prison service after receiving key recommendations by Independent Assessors into the 2010 Maghaberry prison agreement, in particular; an end to Strip Searching, more friendly family visits, relaxation on the number of prisoners on landings, more effective education programmes to meet the needs of prisoners and more purposeful Prisoner Forums:

Mr Ramsey said: “This report clearly reflects what the SDLP and I have been saying for some time. It is very important that everyone uses their influence to ease and end the tensions that occurs in Roe House and the SDLP would like to see these key recommendations being implemented as soon as possible.”
