Conservative Party's knife crime announcement welcomed by think tank

Welcoming the Conservative Party's knife crime announcement, Charlotte Pickles, said:

"This is a welcome balance between prevention and enforcement from the Conservative Party.

"Any politician thinking that we can arrest our way out of this knife crime epidemic is wrong. Stemming the violence means tackling its root causes - school exclusion, poor mental health and drugs.   

"But where arrests are made, swift prosecution is key, and Boris Johnson's pledge to dramatically speed up the charging process is good news.  To deliver on this promise, however, he will have to address the huge strain already on our courts system."
