  • Dangerous Driving Debate | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    Morland who were killed last year by a dangerous driver and called on the government to toughen the sentencing regime for those who kill through dangerous driving The debate was attended by the fiancées of Kris and John Tracey Fidler and Hayley Lindsay and local Reading campaigner Karen Rowland Following the debate Alok Sharma said I was delighted that MPs from all parties spoke up in favour of strengthening sentencing for dangerous driving It was an excellent example of cross party consensus on the need for a change in the law I am also pleased that following the meeting that Tracey and Hayley and I had with the Prime Minister earlier this year the review of penalties for driving offences is fully underway within the Ministry of Justice and the points raised by Tracey and Hayley with the Prime Minister are being taken into account as a part of this review Alok continued Whilst the Minister responding to this debate could not give a precise timing for when the public consultation on this review will be launched he did note that the Government would publicise the public consultation as widely as possible and at the conclusion of this whole process we are likely to have a proposal for a change in the law which Parliament will have to vote on This will be another opportunity in Parliament to set out the case for strengthening the law Of course the courts and judges decide on the level of sentencing in each case but the framework for the sentencing levels is set by Parliament and MPs must act on this to reflect the strength in feeling across the country as shown in the fantastic e petition launched by Tracey and Hayley After the debate Minister Andrew Selous MP met with Tracey Hayley
