On Tuesday 31 January 2023 HM Opposition tabled 2 motions for debate one on Crime and Neighbourhood Policing and the second on abolishing non-dom status.
This is the full text of the first motion:
That this House condemns the Government’s destruction of neighbourhood policing, noting a drop in the number of neighbourhood police officers by 6,000 and of Police Community Support Officers by 8,500; notes with concern the collapse in charges and prosecutions across all types of crime and an overall charge rate of just 5.5 per cent; is extremely concerned by the record levels of recorded rapes and knife-enabled threats to kill and that more than twenty million people witnessed or experienced antisocial behaviour last year; and calls on the Government to protect communities across the UK by increasing neighbourhood policing, including by ringfencing a proportion of the Police Uplift Programme to deliver neighbourhood officers for every local authority in England and Wales.
I voted in favour of this Motion, which was not passed, Ayes: 195, Noes: 309.
In the second part of the Opposition Day Debate, on Tuesday 31 January 2023 HM Opposition tabled a motion on the abolition of the non-domicile tax status.
