Treat knife crime as a health issue, to tackle the current epidemic in London.
Treating knife crime as a health issue is credited with prompting a dramatic drop in stabbings in Scotland, with the decline most pronounced in Glasgow, a city that once had one of the highest murder rates in western Europe.
Stabbings in London are at their highest level in six years, with a 23 per cent rise from the previous year.
The Government must take a different approach and devise a strange, urgently increase funding for the police as well as restoring funding for the services that provide alternative paths away from crime, such as youth services, education, probation and mental health services.”
