Turning rights from the outside in: re-visiting the politics of separation in prison mother and baby units: CF v Secretary of State for the Home Department and Another [2005] CFLQ 545

In CF v Secretary of State for the Home Department and Another, the court considered the legality of prison service order 4801, through which the Secretary of State regulates prison mother and baby units.

This comment analyses the conclusions reached by the court in these regards and laments their implications for future responses to imprisoned mothers and their children.
