(b) must state in open court that the offence was so aggravated.

(2) An offence is to be considered a hate crime for the purposes of section if-

(a) at the time of committing the offence, or immediately before or after doing so, the offender demonstrates towards the victim of the offence hostility based on the victim's actual or perceived race, religion, gender, disability, or sexual orientation; or

(b) the offence is motivated (wholly or partly) by hostility towards people on the basis of their race, religion, gender, disability, or sexual orientation.

(3) In this section "race" may be defined by reference to race, colour, nationality (including citizenship) or ethnic or national origins.'.-[Mr. Heath.]
