New Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme — 7 Nov 2012 at 18:49

Rehman Chishti MP, Gillingham and Rainham voted to approve a proposed compensation scheme for those who have suffered criminal injuries.

The majority of MPs voted to approve a proposed compensation scheme for those who have suffered criminal injuries.

During the debate prior to the vote it was suggested that the draft scheme amounted to a £50 million cut and that in the years leading up to the vote the scheme had a £200 million budget.

The motion rejected in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • affirms its commitment to the blameless victims of violent criminals who suffer physically, emotionally and financially from the injuries inflicted upon them;
  • recognises that the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme is the fund of last resort for much needed compensation for these blameless victims and is relied upon by many thousands of victims each year; and
  • that in the opinion of the House the draft Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012, which was laid before this House on 2 July, should not be approved.
