Victims are an afterthought for this Government – Gloria de Piero

Gloria de Piero MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Minister, responding to the Government’s Victims Strategy said:

“After promising a Victim’s Law over three years ago in their election manifesto and Queen’s Speech programme, the Government have today ensured victims will be forced to wait even longer for the proper support they deserve.

“Instead of protecting victims by immediately enshrining their rights in law, the Government have simply offered more consultations further down the road.

“Once again, victims continue to be an afterthought for this Government who have ignored the needs of vulnerable people across our justice system for too long.”
