Peter Selby to be President

The Rt Revd Dr Peter Selby has a new role when he retires from being the Bishop of Worcester...

The Rt Revd Dr Peter Selby will make sure prisoners are treated with fairness and respect when he becomes the new President of the National Council for Independent Monitoring Boards, as from January 1 2008.

Dr Peter Selby has been Bishop of Worcester since July 1997, and was also appointed Bishop to HM Prisons in 2001; he's retiring from both posts in September 2007.

"I am honoured and delighted to be asked to carry forward the vision of a National Council for Independent Monitoring Boards..."
Dr Peter Selby

He will be taking over from the current National President, Sir Peter Lloyd, who has been doing the job since April 2003.

Dr Selby says: "I am honoured and delighted to be asked to carry forward the vision of a National Council for Independent Monitoring Boards, as it was expressed in Sir Peter Lloyd's 2001 report, and to succeed him as its President.

"I look forward to the challenge ahead as IMB's continue to provide effective monitoring of those in custody, and ensure that they are treated with fairness and respect, and the Council gives effective leadership and voice to their concerns."

Gerry Sutcliffe MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Criminal Justice and Offender Management says: "I greatly appreciate Dr Selby's willingness to take on this role and look forward to working closely with him.

"IMB's have a unique position within prisons and immigration removal centres, to bring independent oversight to the decent treatment of those held in custody, and this is an extremely important role to play in providing leadership to the National Council, and support to Boards during a time of great change in both penal and immigration areas."
