May alleged to have concealed officials' post-Brexit violent crime fears

Commenting on reports in The Times that an unpublished Home Office report showed that Britons could be more at risk of terrorism and crime after Brexit, Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary Ed Davey said: 

"Theresa May was Home Secretary when this report was drawn up – she must now explain why she did not publish it ahead of the EU referendum. She must also explain why she has since claimed Brexit would not lead to reduced security cooperation when this Government report suggests otherwise.
“Liberal Democrats are clear: being in the European Union makes us safer and helps catch criminals.
“Since the referendum the Prime Minister has let down the public with weak platitudes designed to buy off hard-right Conservative Brexiteers. She must now come clean on what Brexit will mean for our security and fighting crime. How many other reports like this are Conservative Ministers hiding from the British public?”
