UK: Male prisoners' free family phone calls are scrapped - but women's aren't under MoJ decision

Article here. Excerpt:

'Free family calls for male prisoners have been scrapped – but women will keep the perk.
But the Ministry of Justice decided in October that men could do without their £5 phone credit, though women still needed the freebie.

A spokesman cited a higher rate of self-harm among female prisoners: a rise of two per cent in women's prisons compared to a 16 per cent fall in male jails in the year to June 2021.'
