Today in Parliament I asked the Secretary of State for Justice, the Rt Hon Robert Buckland MP, about crimes related to domestic abuse. It is vital that we as a society tackle this important issue and I was shocked to hear that one in six crimes in West Yorkshire are linked to domestic abuse.
I very much welcome the Chancellor’s announcements today. We all know the difficulties that COVID 19 have caused to our economy, with many businesses forced to close to keep people safe during the lockdown period.
I have today written a letter to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, George Eustice, regarding my opposition to the cruel and unneccessary fur trade. I believe it is time to stop the import and sale of fur from animals from abroad.
