The Carlile Inquiry: 10 years on

In 2005 Lord Carlile of Berriew QC led an independent, landmark inquiry on behalf of the Howard League into physical restraint, solitary confinement and strip-searching in children's prisons. The resulting report, which made widespread and radical recommendations for change, was published in January 2006.

On the eve of the report's 10th anniversary, Lord Carlile delivered a lecture on change inside child custody over the last decade.
