With the costs of what it takes to keep prisoners in prison and the public safe, well I'm wandering if crime and sentence length dependant if such prisoners that has means or wealth to a means tested degree, well maybe they as part of their sentence should make financial contribution to the cost of them being there?. I mean if a retired person having worked their entire life is expected to contribute to the costs of them being in a care home later in life if need be, then why shouldn't prisoners with similar means also be expected to make financial contribution if they have proven means?.

I'm all for this rule, public safety should come first - rather than being a question of funding.
