Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill — Clause 140 — Police Conditions on Public Assemblies — Retrospective — 31 Mar 2011 at 17:00
The majority of MPs voted to give the police the power to impose conditions on public assemblies which were initiated before the proposed change in the law regulating demonstrations in the vicinity of Parliament comes into force.
- Amendment 162, page 94, line 27, leave out subsection (2).
The subsection (2) in question was Clause 140(2) which stated:
- The public assemblies in relation to which section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986 applies, as a consequence of the repeal of section 132(6) of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005, include public assemblies which started, or were being organised, before this section comes into force.
Section 14 of the Public Order Act enables the police to impose conditions on public assemblies.
