Combating Metal Thefts

Jason has raised the issue of metal thefts with the Prime Minister during PMQs in Parliament. You can watch his question on Youtube, here.

He visited J B Schofield and Sons in Linthwaite to hear the views of a local scrap metal merchant. It is his view that the criminals must be punished, not reputable businesses.

  1. Of course, everyone shares this view, that “the criminals must be punished and not reputable business”.
    Problem is that the CPS still hands out laughable sentences for e.g. burglary and that the chance of getting caught stealing metals is slim.
    So as long as it is possible to cash in on “scrap”, this will continue with high metal prices.
