Automatic jail sentence for knife carriers

The conservative party have announced the potential passage for a new law carrying a stiffer penalty for offenders caught with a knife on more than once occasion.

The proposal was initially drawn up by Justice Secretary Chris Grayling. However it will be tabled as an amendment to a bill by Nick de Bois MP.

Voting for the new law commences mid June 2014 and it is proposed to carry an automatic jail sentence of six months.

We do not adopt this proposal as we believe there should be judicial discretion.
