Tough justice: can Labour be tough on crime and right on reoffending?

July 18, 2011 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Labour came to power promising it would be ‘tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime’ and proceeded in government to cut crime by a third – the only government to leave power with crime lower than its inherited level. During this time, while some progress was made, reoffending remained stubbornly high. The cycle of crime that persists within certain individuals, families and communities was not broken. This event asks, can Labour be tough on crime and right on reoffending?

Keynote: Rt Hon Sadiq Khan MP, shadow justice secretary
Reply: Graham Beech, Strategic Development Director, NACRO
Panel: Jenny Chapman, MP for Darlington
