Andrew backs petition for protection of whistle-blowers


Andrew Smith MP supported constituents Emily and Lucien Taylor and other whilstleblowers in presenting a 10,000 strong petition to No 10 Downing Street.

The petition calls on the government to make victimisation of whistleblowers a crime.

Andrew said: "There is sadly a lot of evidence that whilstleblowers seeking to expose wrong-doing or safety lapses, whether in the private or the public sector, are often at risk of victimisation. All too often serious issues have been swept under the carpet. It is in the public interest that whilsteblowers are properly protected."
