PMQs: Starmer presses Sunak on systemic state failings in Zara Aleena case

Guardian, 25 Jan 2023
Keir Starmer has pressed Rishi Sunak on the findings of a probation inspectorate report into the death of Zara Aleena, which found that her murderer would not have been free to attack her had it not been for a series of devastating state failings.

Asked whether he accepted the findings of the report, the PM said there had bee failings in the risk assessment and that steps were being taken. Starmer said Zara's family had accused the government of having 'blood on their hands', in response to which Sunak expressed sympathy before pointing out that Labour had opposed the police, crime and sentencing bill passed last year.
