UNISON NDC 12: Neville Lawrence addresses Conference

On Friday morning, Neville Lawrence, the father of murdered black teenager ,Stephen Lawrence gave a very moving speech to Conference about his family's quest for Justice. Neville and many delegates were openly tearful during his account
of what they had to go through (and still do).

Neville is opposed to the plans to privatise the Police service "he said: "I can tell you why it will be a disaster. If you privatise the police force, the government is no longer responsible. It won't be about crime any more, it will be about making money.

I had the privilege last week to meet and talk briefly to Mr Lawrence and to shake his hand.
