Keith has visited Clapham Junction, Birmingham, Tottenham and Leicester as part of fact finding for the Home Affairs Committee’s new inquiry into the public disorder seen across the country.

He met with David Lammy MP in Tottenham and heard from residents and business owners who had been affected by the riots on Saturday night or the aftermath. He also met Shabhana Mahmood MP at a public meeting in Birmingham where he heard details of Monday night’s disturbances from local police officers, community members, councillors and local business owners.

The Committee is scheduled to begin its inquiry with oral evidence sessions from the 6th September.
