When I was walking around with the local police looking for knives on a local council estate, I talked to them about the impact of the cuts on their job, and they said the impact was very severe and that they could not do the things they wanted to do. For example, one of the things they do not have the resources to do is to go into schools to normalise the...

Knife Crime ( 6 Sep 2017)

Sarah Jones: It is something that we need to look at. Teachers are overstretched in many ways: many support staff posts have been cut and teachers have to deal with children with special educational needs without the necessary resources.

Knife Crime ( 6 Sep 2017)

Sarah Jones: The hon. Gentleman is right. I welcome the steps that the Home Secretary has already taken and I think we could do more. It is abhorrent that young people—children—find it easy to buy knives online or in shops. We should do everything we can to prevent that. The direct intervention in America and in pockets here works and has high levels of success. I have visited projects and met people...

Knife Crime ( 6 Sep 2017)

Sarah Jones: I support the Mayor’s knife crime strategy. I do not think he is in a position to bridge the funding gap in the way that is required both for policing and for interventions in youth services and other services throughout the capital, but I know that he too is lobbying the Government for the funds that we need to tackle the problem. I know that he is doing absolutely everything he can, as...

Grenfell Tower Fire/Fire Safety (26 Jun 2017)
