Nick Thomas-Symonds – 2021 Comments on Anti-Social Behaviour

The comments made by Nick Thomas-Symonds, the Shadow Home Secretary, on 22 July 2021.

Anti-social behaviour can make people’s lives a misery so these staggering increases are completely unacceptable. Sadly it’s little wonder, given the damage Conservative government cuts have done to community policing, whilst also scrapping huge numbers of youth clubs.“Even in the face of these terrible figures, Ministers continue with the wrong priorities, wasting millions on a pointless yacht, when they should listen to Labour and plough that money into taking action against anti-social behaviour.
