Following the death of constituent Gerald Corrigan who was shot with a crossbow outside his home on Good Friday, Ynys Môn MP Albert Owen has raised the matter in Parliament with the Prime Minister and is appealing to the public to contact the police in confidence with any information and said:
“On the weekend Mr Corrigan died of his injuries and my condolences are with his partner, family and friends.
The community is in shock at this fatal incident and I asked the Prime Minister to join me in appealing to the public if they have any information to contact the North Wales Police in confidence. I also pressed the UK Government to give assurances that the current laws on crossbows are kept under review and that the police has the adequate resources to carry out this murder investigation.
I welcomed the Prime Minister’s response and she supported my call for people to come forward if they have any information and I will take the matter of crossbow laws with the Home Secretary.”Read More
A respite from Brexit in the Commons chamber allows us to debate other important issues that constituents and the wider public raise. Recently the focus has been in the environment and climate change and welfare / social matters, including the need to retain free TV licences for over 75s, which the Tory Government is putting at risk by breaking its promise and hiving off responsibility to the BBC. This could impact on over 5000 households on Anglesey. I supported retaining this in a Labour led debate and thank all those who raised this matter with me.Read More
