In High Peak, many of our local shops and residents have been affected by retail crime, and this is an increasing problem in the run up to Christmas. Having worked for a shopworkers’ union for 20 years and helped set up the Freedom From Fear Campaign, I understand the importance of this issue and wanted to speak in today’s Westminster Hall Debate on the Prevention of Retail Crime. I asked the Minister what he was doing to protect staff and support them in giving crucial evidence to ensure that offenders are prosecuted.

If you would like to watch the session in full you can do so here (I speak at 10:27:39).


Ruth George, Labour's Champion for High Peak

“There has never been such a huge difference between the political parties and the future they offer. I want people in High Peak to know that there is a better alternative than a government which is about to close nearly 20 hospitals, cut £3 billion from our schools, plunge over 4 million working families into poverty through their harsh cuts to Universal Credit and refuses to rule out cuts to pension increases or higher tax and national insurance. In contrast, I will promote Labour’s message of long-term investment in public services, fairness for working people, and decent support for pensioners and those who cannot work.”
