MP’s reporting their own constituents to the Home Office ?

A Freedom of Information request submitted to the Home Office has revealed that it received 482 “tip-offs” from MPs reporting their own clients between 2014 and 2016. This follows the London Mayor’s recent acknowledgement that police officers were duty bound to report both victims and witnesses of crime.

This surely demonstrates the betrayal of one of the fundamental rights of this vulnerable section of our society and will only serve to further erode their trust and cooperation with those to whom they have no option to turn for assistance.

Our experience of clients seeking assistance through their MPs is very mixed and certainly not the panacea to their grievances; we have found using accessing the Parliamentary Ombudsman through a client’s MP to be far more effective, often eliciting a more prompt response from the Home Office.
