Explain measures to prevent the police endangering the homeless

After the incident in Ilford where police took the food and sleeping bags from homeless, to 'remove the negative impact of rough sleepers' (Ch Insp John Fish), leaving them with out nourishment or a way to keep warm (and not even alerting the agency's that may be able to help to what they were going to do).

We want Parliament to take action, not only starting a public inquiry in to the event but to take action to prevent this ever occurring again.

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

This is a matter for the relevant police force and Police and Crime Commissioner.
