Knife Crime Petition

Please sign my knife crime petition below:

"I require the judges in England and Wales to enforce "Enfield's Law" which was named after the borough where the campaign for automatic jail sentences for those convicted of carrying a knife twice began. That Law is not being enforced by the judges and recent figures show almost 40% of offenders are still avoiding a jail term when convicted by the courts. It is not acceptable that judges are ignoring the will of parliament and campaigners"

Background:

I was the MP for Enfield Southgate who, with Nick de Bois, introduced a law that means automatic jail sentences for those convicted of carrying a knife twice. The Law is known as "Enfield's Law" after the borough I represented in parliament and where the campaign for this law began. That Law, for automatic jail sentences for those convicted of carrying a knife twice is not being enforced by the judges and I am launching a campaign to gain public support for them to do so.
