The Tories cannot be trusted to keep us safe – Richard Burgon responds to latest crime figures

Responding to new figures showing the number of individuals formally dealt with by the Criminal Justice System is at the lowest since records began, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary Richard Burgonsaid:

The Tories have created a crisis in our criminal justice system that has left our communities less safe and victims less supported.

These figures once again show why the Tories cannot be trusted to tackle this crisis.

After years of Tory neglect, the coming Labour government will rebuild our Criminal Justice System at every level.
