Toxic combination of cuts, carelessness and incompetence is hampering the fight against serious crime – Louise Haigh

Louise Haigh MP, Labour’s Shadow Policing Minister Louise Haigh, commenting on the NAO report on tackling serious and organised crime, said:

“Serious and organised crime is the most deadly security threat facing the UK, yet the government response is haphazard, under-resourced and fragmented.

“This report suggests Ministers aren’t just failing to tackle serious crime, they barely understand it.

“This toxic combination of cuts, carelessness and incompetence is hampering the fight against serious crime.”
