Nick Thomas-Symonds – 2021 Comments on Laughing Gas Possession

The comments made by Nick Thomas-Symonds, the Shadow Home Secretary, on 3 September 2021.

It is right that the Independent Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs assesses the concerning use of nitrous oxide, to assess the harm this causes and considers different options. However, this will not be an answer to the terrible impact Conservative cuts to policing have caused.
