On Tuesday, I accompanied my constituents Marie, Ken and Callum West to the Ministry of Justice.
The Minister had originally agreed to my request for a meeting because he was keen to ascertain first hand Mr and Mrs West’s experience of the criminal justice system.
In reality, the news from the meeting is extremely positive. The Minister has now agreed to make representations on behalf of Ken and Marie West to the parole board, to have the murderer of their daughter excluded from areas that Ken West is working for the Ambulance Service as a paramedic.
This is what the West family have always campaigned for. On Friday I held a debate about the prohibition of Liquid Nitrogen in drinks after my constituent Gaby Scanlon was seriously injured while celebrating her eighteenth birthday.
The Minister told me that he will be looking at the report that Lancaster City Council is currently compiling and the Food Standards Agency will consider the report also.
