Anne Main condemns calls for protest days when police are already under pressure

28th June 2017

Anne Main condemns calls for ‘days of rage’ that increase pressures on police from areas such as Hertfordshire that have to provide mutual aid.

Further to my right hon. Friend’s answer to the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips), does it not increase pressures on the police when there are calls for days of rage and other activities on the streets that pull the police into London and take away resources from areas such as mine in Hertfordshire that have to provide mutual aid?

 

That is a very good point from my hon. Friend. We need to make sure that, at a time when such terrible national events are taking place, everybody gives out the message that we should support our police by having fewer protests of that type.
