Drugs gangs targeting vulnerable children in Greater Manchester
Ann Coffey MP warned today that vulnerable children in Greater Manchester are being targeted by violent criminal gangs to transport and sell drugs across the country.
Speaking in a House of Commons adjournment debate on ‘County Lines’, Ms Coffey said that children in children’s homes and Pupil Referral Units were being groomed and used by gangs. She urged anyone who suspected this was happening in their community to report it to Greater Manchester Police.
This website is now inactive, as I am not currently an MP during the period when Parliament is dissolved until after the general election on Thursday 8th June.
Over the last week I have received a number of e-mails in relation to Brexit and the EU referendum. The Government yesterday tabled a bill to give the Prime Minister the authority to trigger article 50. The bill is currently very brief and amendments will of course be brought forward next week when it will be debated more fully by the House of Commons.
