The Offender Rehabilitation Bill was announced in the 2013 Queen’s Speech, received its first reading on 9 May 2013 and is due to receive its second reading on 20 May 2013. The Bill makes provision to increase support and supervision upon release for those serving a sentence of less than two years and would make a number of changes to the arrangements for community orders and suspended sentence orders. The Bill also expands the potential use of post-release conditions to combat drug misuse. With the Bill forming part of the Government’s Transforming Rehabilitation strategy, this Note contains reaction to the Government’s proposals as a whole, and then provides background to the provisions contained in the Bill.
