I will just give my second reason, which is that allowing private companies to make a profit out of the incarceration of human beings is simply immoral.

Before the hon. Lady’s intervention, I remind hon. Members that the debate is tightly focused on the pension age of prison officers, and I hope that interventions and contributions will focus just on that.
