Written evidence submitted by Anonymous (VTR0008)


The Committee is looking to receive written evidence on the following points:


  1. The police response to incidents of abuse and violence towards retail workers;





  1. Barriers to justice for victims of retail abuse and violence;




Whether a new aggravated offence is required;





  1. The adequacy of the Government’s response to its call for evidence.


Appalling, shows how little is understood of the retail environment especially at this time of a pandemic. To ask colleagues to complete a survey during their busiest trading period, suggests that they are hoping for a low response and how committed they are to make any changes.
