The Tory Government are letting down victims of crime – Christina Rees

Christina Rees MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Minister,
speaking in response to the statement by Baroness Newlove, the Victims’
Commissioner, said:

“This is a damning indictment of a Tory Government that is letting
the victims of crime down.

“Despite
promising a Victims’ Law in 2015, the Conservatives have dragged their feet
ever since.

“Labour
will keep pressing for the rights of victims to be enshrined in law so that
every victim can make a personal statement when in court.

“It’s
time the Government lived up to its promises.”
