Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill — Clause 55 — Imposing Conditions on Public Processions — 28 Feb 2022 at 23:30
The majority of MPs voted to allow the police to set conditions on seriously disruptively noisy processions.
The motion supported by a majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 73.
Amendment 73 stated:
- Page 47, line 1, leave out subsections (2) and (3)
Had it not been rejected the amendment would have impacted Clause 55 of the Bill titled: Imposing conditions on public processions.
Subsections 2 and 3 provided for powers for the police to set conditions on seriously disruptively noisy processions.
The explanatory notes to the rejected amendment stated:
- Lords Amendment 73* would omit subsections (2) and (3) from Clause 55. These subsections broaden the circumstances in which conditions may be imposed on those organising or taking part in a procession to include where the senior police officer reasonably believes that the noise generated by persons taking part in the procession may have a significant relevant impact on persons in the vicinity or may result in serious disruption to the activities of an organisation which are carried on in the vicinity of the procession.
