UK Government Acknowledges House of Lord's Amendment to "Insult Law"

UK Government Acknowledges House of Lord's Amendment to "Insult Law"

The Adventrlp readers are being informed that the Home Secretary, Theresa May, on 14th January 2013 signalled that the Government would accept to remove the word "insulting" from Section 5 of the Public Order Act, 1986. Mrs May told the MPs that the House of Lord's amendment put forward by Lord Dear, a former Chief Constable and HM Inspector of Constabulary would not be challenged. She said,

"I respect the review taken by their Lordships. They had concerns which I know are shared by some in this House that Section 5 encroaches upon freedom of expression." [1]

The Peers had overwhelmingly voted 150 to 54 in favour of the change. It is the hope of the campaigners that the law which had been perceived as an infringement, will now enhance the public's freedom of speech, expression and religious liberty.
