I’m still trawling my way through Lords Hansard text for the Second Reading of Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill armed with my trusty highlighter pen.
For the Police Officers that follow me on Twitter here’s something I came across from Baroness Newlove (column 884):
May I ask noble Lords to join me in conveying a huge thank you and get well soon message to the four brave police officers who were stabbed in the line of duty yesterday in North London? Our officers get up each morning, kiss their loved ones goodbye and walk into the unknown-a violent and unpredictable world. There is no guarantee that they will return unharmed, as this latest knive attack reminds us all. That is why we have to get knives off our streets, to limit the risk to them and us.
Just in case it doesn’t get brought to your attention through other routes I thought you might just like to know.
