Richard Burgon responds to the conviction of Joseph McCann

Richard Burgon, Labour’s Shadow Secretary for Justice, responding to the conviction of Joseph McCann, said:

“These are horrific crimes. We need to ensure the public has full confidence in our justice system. There must now be a full independent review into what led to these shocking failures including what role deep government cuts to the Ministry of Justice budget and chaotic probation reforms played.”
