Offensive Weapons Bill - Government document

The Government has recently produced this document (attached).

Amber Rudd’s statement is not very inspiring to say the least. It is wooden and lacking in penetration and understanding of the real issues, and is lacking detailed evidence.

Government also got the policing cuts wrong and that needs highlighting.

Members will be aware that we responded robustly to the public consultation, and in conjunction with BSSC are again in touch with the Home Office on this issue.

We are handling this at the highest level possible in the face of the Government “knee jerk” reaction. Please avoid any speculation and rumours which do not help us.

We will report any news on the website in the usual way as soon as there is something useful and concrete to say.
