Sadiq Khan comments on the decision of the Court of Appeal on whole life tariffs,

Sadiq Khan MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary, commenting on the decision of the Court of Appeal on whole life tariffs, said:

"Today’s Court of Appeal ruling is a welcome decision. Judges should be able to lock up for life those guilty of the most horrible crimes and it was a Labour government that gave them this power. We now need the Government to make a considered response to the Strasbourg judgement and Labour is willing to work with Ministers to get the right result."
