Updated statement on transgender people in prison
In March 2019, the Ministry of Justice started to develop specialist accommodation (known as E wing) for some trans women in HMP Downview, a women’s prison. This statement is an update on that made on 17th March 2019, responding to further developments to the broader issue of transgender women and men in the prison system, particularly women’s prisons, and community based women’s spaces.
