Mark supports Briddon family campaign on sentencing for drink drivers who kill

Mark Williams, Member of Parliament for Ceredigion, met with the family of Miriam Briddon, who was killed by a drink driver in 2014, to show his support for their campaign to ensure that drink drivers who kill receive tougher sentences.

The Miriam family visited Westminster on Thursday 27th October after their petition to reform the law around drink driving received over 100,000 signatures. They met with Mark at the Houses of Parliament before handing in their petition at 10 Downing Street.

Mark said “I was proud to offer my support to the Briddon family on Thursday. Their hard work has seen their petition signed by over 100,000 people and has shown the strong sense of feeling that the law needs to be changed.

“The death of Miriam Briddon was a tragedy, but I hope the efforts of her family will mean that others do not have to suffer in future and that justice is served.

“I welcome the news that the Government plans to hold a review into driving offences and penalties for those who kill or cause serious injury on the roads, however, this review must lead to change and I will do everything I can to ensure that the Government takes action.”
