Tool Crime. Deserves Time.

Our Government must look strongly into the growing problem of tool theft from vans and must impose much tougher penalties on those convicted of these crimes. Not only that but I will also be looking for our Government to put stricter guidelines and laws in place for selling second hand tools.

Why is this important?

It is an increasing problem Country wide for all tradesmen and women. It takes years of hard work and a large expense to build up a tool kit and a van that enables you to earn an honest living. More and more people are being affected by this crime and it needs to be stopped. I want this petition to reach Parliament to demand new laws that impose a minimum 2 year sentence on those convicted of vandalising vans and stealing tools. Also, we need a system that ensures any victim will be reimbursed for their loss in full immediately to enable that person to carry on working.

How it will be delivered

My local MP will be taking this petition and my campaign to Parliament to be heard.
