Anna McMorrin responds to Government announcement on Victims Bill

Anna McMorrin MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Victims and Youth Justice, responding to the Government’s announcement on the Victims’ Bill consultation, said:

“The criminal justice system under the Tories has let victims down and criminals off the hook for far too long.

“Five Justice Secretaries have promised yet failed to deliver a Victims’ Bill and the Government’s dithering has decimated victims’ confidence in the justice system so much that some survivors say their experience of the justice system was worse than the crime itself.

“It’s time for delivery from the Conservatives after years of inaction: the Government needs to stop dragging its feet. Back Labour’s legislation and put it into law now.”
