Commenting on the Government's decision tonight to withdraw their proposed cuts to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, Labour's Shadow Justice Minister Rob Flello MP said:
"Even contemplating these cuts that would have affected innocent victims of crime shows this Tory-led Government is out of touch.
"At every turn, Labour is watching the actions of this Government. The Tory-led Government is putting the wrong people first, to date they've put the needs of victims at the bottom of their priority list. We are on the side of victims and we will oppose this Government's policies that threaten their needs"
