Overwhelming Support For Prebble's Crime Bill

Published: Fri 1 Oct 1999 12:19 AM
ACT Leader Richard Prebble said today he was delighted with the overwhelming support for his Truth in Sentencing Bill to ensure criminals serve more of their sentence.
Last night's Assignment/Colmar Brunton poll showed Mr Prebble's Bill gained the largest amount of public support - 86 percent - of any proposal for changes to crime penalties.
"The public is sending the two main parties a message that they are sick and tired of politicians letting dangerous criminals out of jail early," Mr Prebble said.
