We launched a call for evidence on violence and abuse toward shop staff to help strengthen our understanding of the scale and extent of the issue. 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.
