To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, on what date she plans to respond to her Department's consultation on violence and abuse toward shop staff.

The call for evidence has now closed and we are carefully analysing the responses before deciding what further action may be required. During the Westminster Hall debate on ‘Protection of retail workers’, which took place on 11 February, I committed to publishing the government’s response in March.
