Labour responds to ONS crime statistics showing an increase in fraud

Conor McGinn MP, Labour’s Shadow Security Minister, responding to today’s ONS crime statistics showing an increase in fraud, said:

“Yet more rises in fraud under the Conservatives prove beyond doubt that they have lost control over this appalling crime.

“Fraud can be devastating for victims. It shatters personal finances, it damages our economy, and it’s a real and present threat.

“More Tory delay cannot be an option. We need a comprehensive, joined-up strategy across the Government to finally deal with this growing crime wave, as Labour has long called for.”
