News from Westminster

Following my two recent questions in the Chamber, I met with the Secretary of State for Justice, Lord Chancellor Alex Chalk to discuss the sentencing of the man responsible for the tragic death of my young constituent, Gregg McGuire.  I was joined in this meeting by Gregg’s mother, Alison, his stepfather, Daniel, and Sergeant Lowery the lead officer on the case.

I am deeply appreciative of the Lord Chancellor taking the time to personally listen to Gregg’s tragic case and the empathy and support he showed to the family.

I am encouraged by his commitment to hear for himself the initial prosecution statement and the sentencing remarks made by the presiding Judge.

In the pursuit of justice for Gregg and other victims of road traffic incidents, I stand united with Alison and her family.
