The first duty that we’ve got as a government is to take every measure we can to make sure that we don’t see further families going through that same suffering and anguish.

“Our duty is to protect the public and that’s why, and you mentioned prison places, our manifesto is clear, we don’t want to cut those, we want to increase them by 10,000. Of course, we want to reform and rehabilitate criminal offenders where that’s possible but I think, in this case and in the level of very serious dangerous, criminal offenders, it’s clear that some of those we will struggle to be sure that we can reform, that they will rehabilitate. We are absolutely clear, we will not allow the release of people on to the streets who present a danger.”
