Joan Ryan MP has questioned the Justice Minister about his Department's strategy for supporting victims of crime.
More than 23,000 individual crimes have been reported in Enfield during the past 12 months. For far too long, the victims of these crimes have been forgotten and ignored by the criminal justice system. Even the Victims' Commissioner supports the introduction of a law for victims of crime.
So yesterday I asked the Minister for Justice, Dr Philip Lee MP, when will the Government fulfil their election manifesto commitment to bring forward legislation on this issue?
I'm determined to do all I can to hold the Government to account, make our streets safer, and ensure that victims of crime get the support they need.
