North Wiltshire MP, James Gray, joined colleagues from across the House yesterday to raise awareness of One Punch Assaults during One Punch Awareness Week.

The One Punch charity and All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) are using this week to promote the dangers around one punch assaults, focusing on the tag line ‘one punch can kill’.

Currently in the UK there is no data on the impacts of One Punch Assaults due to the complexity of disaggregating one punch assaults from other assaults, something the APPG on One Punch Assaults is currently investigating and trying to improve.

Commenting, Mr Gray said:

“One punch assaults can have a devastating and often life threatening impact. I was glad to join Dehenna Davison MP and many other colleagues from across the House today to raise awareness of the destruction cases like this can cause.”

Chair of the APPG and Bishop Auckland MP, Dehenna Davison, said:

“It was great to see so many colleagues from across the House join me in Westminster Hall today to raise awareness of the devastating impacts one punch assaults can have.

“I am incredibly grateful to James Gray MP for joining me today, as this is such a personal passion of mine and I appreciate his support on raising awareness of this issue.”
