Acid attacks and drones announcement

20 Feb 2019
Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to Sajid Javid’s announcement of new powers to prevent acid attacks and curb dangerous use of drones, said:

“The need for new powers to tackle dangerous or malicious crime simply underlines the evolving threats our police and judicial system are facing. But it also underlines the police’s lack of resources since the Tories axed 21,000 officers. Labour will invest in our communities in order to address this policing crisis. You can’t have safety and security on the cheap.”
