David Lammy – 2021 Comments on Whole Life Orders

The comments made by David Lammy, the Shadow Justice Secretary, on 10 June 2021.

The protection of women and girls from violence is one of the first duties of any government.

But the Conservatives are failing to take the actions necessary to protect them.

The Conservatives should urgently introduce whole life orders for any offender found guilty of the rape, abduction and murder of a stranger, as well as Labour’s broader package of measures to keep women and girls safe.
