Priti Patel: independent review.  House of Commons 

Home Secretary Priti Patel delivers statement on the Met Police.  Ms Patel announced an independent review to be carried out into Met Police’s handling of Sarah Everard vigil.

Turning to the events of Saturday she says some of the footage is “upsetting”.  Home Secretary said she is ‘listening to women and girls’ following criticism of the police’s behaviour.

Patel says she understands why the death of Sarah Everard has upset so many people.  “Too many of us have walked home from school or work only to hear footsteps uncomfortably close behind us,” she says, adding “that is not OK”.

She tells MPs that the government have put in place laws to ensure women and girls feel safe aimed at tackling domestic abuse, female genital mutilation and upskirting.

Priti Patel says last year she opened a public survey of women and girls to hear their thoughts on how to tackle gendered crimes.  She says she reopened that survey on Friday, “in the wake of the outpouring of grief”. As of 11:00 GMT today, there have now been 78,000 responses, which the home secretary says is “completely unprecedented”.

“I am listening to women and girls up and down the country and their views will help to shape a new strategy on tackling violence against women and girls,” she says.

What are your thoughts?  Is Priti Patel doing the right thing?  Will a review help the situation?  Can women be made to feel safe on the streets?
