Stephen has been successful in tabling for an end of day Adjournment Debate on acid attacks. The debate will take place on Monday 17 July.
Stephen said: “I am pleased that Parliamentary time will be given to discussing acid attacks. They are causing a lot concern to many residents in Newham. During the debate, I will press Ministers to consider licensing the sale of corrosive liquids to combat the surge in acid attacks.”
An adjournment debate is held at the end of each day’s sitting. They are an opportunity for an individual backbench MP to raise an issue and receive a response from the relevant Minister.
