Nickie Aiken, Member of Parliament for the Cities of London & Westminster, questioned the Home Secretary, Priti Patel MP, in Parliament today following the weekend’s Black Lives Matter and counter protests in Westminster.
Nickie asked the Home Secretary the following:
“For the past two weekends parts of my constituency of the Cities of London and Westminster have experienced some appalling acts of criminal damage including smashed windows and offensive graffiti and even worse, violence towards frontline police officers. Would my RHF agree that we should recognise the outstanding service these brave officers have given to ensure the safety of peaceful protestors and local residents whose lives are frequently disrupted by such protests, and will she commit to bringing to justice the hooligans responsible and reassure all those on the frontline that they have this Government’s complete support?”
