“These knives have no practical use. The only purpose they have is to injure and kill.
“They should be banned from sale. I look forward to working closely with the Home Office to get these loopholes closed.
“I am proud of having led the campaign with the Express and Star to get zombie knives banned. I am determined that these loopholes should be cracked down on too.
