Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill

Memorandum submitted by Yvonne Newnham (PR 12)

I have no particular expertise. I am a member of the public who wishes to express her opinion.

I feel that it is ridiculous to propose to spend money on these elections at a time when we are supposed to be in severe financial difficulty, being told that we have to save money by making cuts to many local services.

I would far rather that the Police service continued as it has done, working satisfactorily for many years, than, for instance, our local library having to close through lack of funds.
