Comments on Westminster Attack

An MP has demanded government ensure all Police forces are given the resources they need to keep the public safe following the terrorist attack in Westminster.

Shipley MP Philip Davies made the call during a Common’s statement on yesterday’s attack.

Mr Davies said: “Our hearts go out to the victims and we honour the police who risk their lives every day to keep us safe and unfortunately too often give up their lives to keep us safe. Can the Prime Minister assure us that she will make sure that the Police forces up and down the country and the security services will always have the resources that they need in order to carry out their job in keeping us all safe?

Prime Minister Theresa May said: “We have taken steps to enhance resources for our Police and intelligence agency and protect the resources for our police forces working in the counter terrorism area. We have looked in recent times to increase the number of armed response vehicles available and that is not just in London but in other parts of the country as well. We constantly look at making sure our response is appropriate but we are very conscious of the job our police do day in day out and we give them the support they need.
