Iain Stewart MP, along with Ben Everitt MP, has invited the Home Secretary, Priti Patel, to Milton Keynes to discuss the ongoing issue of knife crime in the city.
The Milton Keynes MPs have written a joint letter to the Secretary of State sharing their concern over the rise of knife crime in MK.
Iain recently met with Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Barber and local police officers in Netherfield to discuss violent crime, the causes and potential solutions.
Iain Stewart, the MP for Milton Keynes South, commented:
“In my Build Back Better in Milton Keynes South Survey, 39% of respondents said that tackling crime and anti-social behaviour should be prioritised as a local issue.
“That is why I have recently written to the Home Secretary, Priti Patel, and met with the Thames Valley Police and Crime commissioner, Matthew Barber, to see what more can be done to tackle knife crime in Milton Keynes.
“I will continue to work with them both to make sure all residents feel safe and secure in their communities!”
Today, the MPs are publishing the letter that they sent to Priti Patel earlier this month.
