Nick Thomas-Symonds responds to the Times splash about 150,000 arrest records being deleted by the Home Office

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the Times splash about 150,000 arrest records being deleted by the Home Office, said:

“This is an extraordinarily serious security breach that presents huge dangers for public safety.   

“The incompetence of this shambolic Government cannot be allowed to put people at risk, let criminals go free and deny victims justice.  

 “The Home Secretary must take responsibility for this serious problem. She must – urgently – make a statement about what has gone wrong, the extent of the issue, and what action is being taken to reassure the public. Answers must be given.”
