BRADFORD South MP Judith Cummins has called on the Government to deliver justice for families of those killed by dangerous and careless drivers.

It comes a year after changes to sentencing guidelines for drivers who cause death by dangerous or careless driving were announced.

Questioning Andrea Leadsom, Leader of the House of Commons, she said: "One year on from the Government announcing tougher sentences for dangerous drivers and despite repeated calls from across the House for the legislation to be brought into force, we are still no further forward. One family member of a victim has said 'the Government’s delay in implementing tougher penalties has denied my family the justice that we need'."

"Can the Leader of the House tell us when these families can expect the justice that they deserve?”

Mrs Leadsom paid tribute to the Bradford MP's work on the issue and said: "I don’t have a further update for her right now, but if she would like to write to me I can take it up with the department on her behalf.”
