Death Penalty

Asked for the Prime Minister’s view on the death penalty, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister’s view on the death penalty, like the majority of MPs, was that he was not a supporter of the restoration of the death penalty. In recent decades restoration of the death penalty had been consistently voted down, with big majorities, in Parliament. We had introduced whole life sentences, as handed down last week to Steve Wright, and the Government believed that these remained the ultimate sanctions available for those who committed the most serious offences.
