The Scottish Prisons Commission (chaired by Henry McLeish) was asked to look at the purpose and impact of imprisonment in contemporary Scotland.
Do you think prison is the right place for the majority of Scottish offenders? Do you have some doubts? If so we'd like to know more about your views on who gets sent to jail in Scotland and why.
The Commission reported on July 1, 2008, making 23 recommendations.
