Public Order Bill — Report (1st Day) — Amendment 8 — 30 Jan 2023 at 18:30

Moved by Lord Faulks

8: Clause 1, page 1, line 18, at end insert- “(2A) The fact that the person did the act mentioned in paragraph (a) of subsection (1) as part of or in furtherance of a protest on an issue of current debate will not constitute a reasonable excuse for doing that act.”Member’s explanatory statementThis amendment seeks to limit the scope of the reasonable excuse defence, as the ingredients of the offence themselves ensure consistent with case law that its interference with a protester’s Convention rights is proportionate.

Ayes 221, Noes 224.
