Protection of Freedoms Bill — Amendment to Programme Motion — 10 Oct 2011 at 18:58

Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs voted against more time to consider amendments to the Public Order Act, including reducing the scope of offence of causing harassment, alarm or distress.

The majority of MPs voted against spending more time considering amendments to the Public Order Act, including reducing the scope of offence of causing harassment, alarm or distress.

MPs were considering their timetable for consideration of the Protection of Freedoms Bill.

The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • after “Proceedings” on the first day insert—
  • ‘New Clauses relating to the Public Order Act 1986; and’

Had this rejected amendment been passed it would have ensured that amendments to the Bill, including proposals[1] to restrict the scope of Section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986 were considered during the first day's debate on the Bill, from the start of the main business until 8.30pm, rather than being dealt with alongside many other matters on in the last hour allocated to the consideration of the Bill.
