Holly Lynch: What assessment she has made of the potential connection between crime levels and changes in the level of neighbourhood policing.
Holly Lynch: As the Home Secretary will know, one of the crimes that has increased is the carrying out of attacks on police officers themselves.

Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant), on Friday? That having been said, Her...

Holly Lynch: In Calderdale in the past 12 months, we have lost 50% of our neighbourhood policing officers. The picture being painted by the Minister could not be any further from the reality on the streets of Halifax. The pay bonus would cost West Yorkshire police an additional £4 million, which is the equivalent of 83 police officers. How does the Minister expect our forces to be able to deliver the...
Holly Lynch: What steps the Government are taking to ensure that the Crown Prosecution Service has adequate resources to tackle social media hate crime.
Holly Lynch: I am grateful for that response, but will the Solicitor General go further and outline what steps are being taken to address the significant variations in conviction rates across different regions, with particular reference to the 4.7% fall in successful convictions for religiously aggravated hate crime in 2015-16?

Holly Lynch: The Secretary of State talks a great deal about gaining control of our waters after Brexit, but, as usual with this Government, so much of the detail is sadly lacking.

Holly Lynch: I am delighted to follow my good and hon. Friend the Member for Ogmore (Chris Elmore). It is a pleasure to make my first speech in the new Parliament. It is a privilege that I feared might elude me, going into the snap general election. I was trailing in the polls, and had a majority of just 428. The betting odds were 10:1 against me. Returning to Westminster, one of my so-called hon....
Holly Lynch: The uplift in the number of armed police officers in West Yorkshire has come directly from neighbourhood and response policing, making day-to-day policing that bit tougher.

Will she accept that the issue is not exclusively about powers; it is also about the number of...
