Sadiq Khan MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary, commenting on reports that the Tory-led Government is preparing legislation on prisoner voting, said:
 
"The Tory-led Government’s sheer confusion this morning over whether prisoners will or won’t get the vote is yet another illustration of the ridiculously shambolic way they are running our country. The public will be rightly concerned at reports prisoners could get a vote. If true, thousands of those serving sentences for serious and violent crimes such as wounding, assault and domestic violence would be given a say in who runs the country. Instead of the chaos of leaks and spin we’ve seen this morning, the public deserve the truth about the Government’s intentions.”
