Kit Malthouse – 2021 Comments on Sobriety Tags

The comments made by Kit Malthouse, the Crime, Policing and Probation Minister, on 20 December 2021.

Alcohol-fuelled violence ruins too many lives and families and creates mayhem in our town centres. It is a sad reality that over Christmas we see a worrying spike in domestic abuse and crimes fuelled by drink.

Sobriety tags have already brought enormous benefit helping offenders change their ways and the Probation Service to clamp down on this behaviour and protect victims from further violence.
