Regarding Car Thefts, I have been working in Parliament with a small group of MPs on a new Criminal Justice Bill.
Along with many other measures, the Bill will criminalise the possession, importation, making, adapting, supplying or offering to supply an electronic device, such as a signal jammer, for use in theft of a vehicle or theft of anything in a vehicle. Once the Bill passes, the maximum penalty will be five years’ imprisonment, an unlimited fine, or both. Criminals are always adapting, innovating and finding new ways to commit crimes.
I hope that having this new legal offence will help the police to crack down on these vehicle crimes.
