David Hanson MP, Labour's Shadow Policing Minister, responding to Damian Green's comments that people can't complain about Police and Crime Commissioners if they don't vote, said:

“This Government will blame anyone but themselves for all the problems with these elections, when the truth is that they are all of their own making.

“But because these are important elections for the safety of our communities, Labour is doing our best to make them work. Our candidates are campaigning hard and we want as many people as possible to come out and vote Labour on 15 November so that we can send a message to David Cameron about his cuts to 15,000 police officers.”
