Supported action on violent crime

  • I sit on the Government’s Serious Violence Taskforce to hold them to account for their actions, I’m a member of the Youth Violence Commission, and I’ve voted to introduce tougher measures on those found to be carrying knives and other offensive weapons. I also led the the first debate in the House of Commons on knife crime and serious youth violence.

Worked to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour

I have supported local residents and businesses in dealing with crime and anti-social behaviour -  working with both the Council and police. 

Campaigned for increased police funding

I have worked to support our police and have repeatedly called on the Government to give them the resources they need to tackle all forms of crime and anti-social behaviour.
