Retailers are being urged to add their weight to the Bill that could enable them to legally use greater force against intruders.
Conservative shadow foreign minister Anne McIntosh’s Householder Protection Bill is set to get its next reading in Parliament on March 3.
McIntosh is asking retailers, who are covered in the Bill, to come forward with examples of how it could help them.
McIntosh is keen to hear
from retailers who have suffered from a lack of protection against intruders. “I would be interested to hear from any retailers about unpleasant experiences.
“The issue is to ensure the campaign doesn’t die down so we need more case studies to keep the issue alive and in the public domain.”
