Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill — New Clause 3 — Racial and religious hatred — 7 Feb 2005 at 18:00

The aye voters failed to insert a new clause into the Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill saying:

'For section 17 of the Public Order Act 1986 (c. 64) (meaning of "racial hatred") substitute—

"(1) In this Part 'racial hatred' means hatred against a racial group, of persons defined by reference (whether directly or indirectly) to colour, race, nationality, (including citizenship) or ethnic or national origins ("a racial group").

(2) In this section—

(a) 'an indirect reference' means a reference to religion or religious belief or to a person's membership or presumed membership of a religious group as a pretext for stirring up racial hatred against a racial group;

(b) 'religious group' means a group of persons defined by reference to religion or religious belief.".'.— [Mr. Heath.]
