Protect the Protectors Bill

Delighted to see Chris Bryant's and Holly Lynch's campaign to #protecttheprotectors received cross party support today and now goes to the House of Lords.

The Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill, introduces a new offence of common assault against an emergency worker and require courts to treat attacks on emergency workers as an aggravating factor for sentencing purposes.

A fantastic result and I'm proud of my colleagues and Trade Unions involved who were integral in getting this through the House of Commons.
