Preet Kaur Gill MP has joined forces with her Labour and Co-operative MP colleagues in backing Usdaw union's campaign to make it an offence to assault, threaten or abuse a shopworker who is preventing an illegal sale of acid or knives.

Usdaw's annual members survey in 2017 showed that 66% of shopworkers have been verbally abused by customers, and 40% have been threatened with physical violence.
