Policing and Crime Bill debate

Posted in law and order, politicians on liberty by ukliberty on January 23, 2009


Rob Marris PS (Rt Hon Shaun Woodward, Secretary of State), Northern Ireland Office; Wolverhampton South West, Labour):

I suggest to my right hon. Friend that the Government’s manifold success in tackling crime has been built rather more on the efforts of a well-funded police force than on successive pieces of criminal justice legislation, which wend their way endlessly through this Chamber. Could she say a little more to the House about why we need another police and justice Bill? It will be about the 46th Bill in the lifetime of this Parliament—[Hon. Members: “66!”] Somebody says from a sedentary position that it is the 66th. That does seem an awful lot.

More comments soon on this (some dodgy looking stuff in Part 4 Proceeds of Crime).

I’m sure you can’t wait!
