"MP's bang on about the need to reform the public sector, maybe they should look a little closer to home"

Chairman of Hampshire Police Federation, John Apter has spoken out after a law which would see 'upskirting' become a criminal offence was blocked by Christchurch MP Sir Christopher Chope.

The proposed law was brought in as a private members bill but was halted in its tracks by the MP which has been condemned by MP's from all parties.

Chairman John Apter said, "this law would have seen 'upskirting' become a criminal offence in its own right, most sensible and right mind people support this and for an MP to block it in this way is not acting in the interests of democracy. This is nothing more than playing political games, to do it on such an issue is shameful.

"MP's bang on about the need to reform the public sector, maybe they should look a little closer to home. This highlights the need for Parliament to be reviewed and reformed so it truly reflects the views of the public they are there to represent."
