Police telephoned me earlier this evening to inform me that they have arrested 12 young men so far.

The Criminal Law (Temporary Provisions) Act provides for detention without trial in order to facilitate thorough investigations into cases like this. I am glad we still have these laws and an effective Police Force capable of quick and decisive action to break the backs of gangs like this.

Don’t hesitate to call the Poice if you notice any suspicious people loitering in our neighbourhood.
