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

The comments made by Nick Thomas-Symonds, the Shadow Home Secretary, on 7 April 2021.

The shocking rise in the number of people experiencing anti-social behaviour is a huge cause of concern for families and communities across the country.

People deserve to feel safe and secure in their neighbourhoods and town centres, but under the Conservatives police numbers have been slashed, violent crime has risen to record levels, and anti-social behaviour has been left unchecked.

Labour will work to put more police on our streets and would act where the Conservatives have failed and introduce a new Victims’ Law that would give victims of anti-social behaviour the same rights as victims of crimes.
