Commenting, Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party Committee on Home Affairs, Justice and Equality, Tom Brake, said:

"The motion we have passed today avoids a knee-jerk response to last month's disturbances. Complex problems require carefully considered solutions not sound bites.

"Liberal Democrats will continue to push for effective evidence-based policies to cut crime and boost rehabilitation. That means tough sentences for serious crimes and tough community sentences for low level offenders."
