KNIFINGS AND SHOOTINGS UP AS MURDER RATE SOARS
SMITH: Defended Labour's stance on weapons
Monday April 28,2008
By Gabriel Milland Political Correspondent
THERE has been a huge increase in being people shot, stabbed and even kicked to death since Labour came to power.
Shocking statistics released last night show a 14 per cent increase in murder and manslaughter in England and Wales between 1998 and 2007.
There was also a 28 per cent increase in deaths from bladed weapons. Those killed by shootings increased by the same figure. . . .
