Thatcher Room, Portcullis House

Witnesses:

At 12.15 pm
• Assistant Commissioner Lynn Owens, Metropolitan Police

The Chair of the Committee, Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP, said:

“The update by the Assistant Commissioner Lynn Owens will give the Home Affairs Select Committee an opportunity to look at the tactics and resources used by the Police. There appears to be two types of protests, a peaceful march attended by thousands, followed by the violence carried out by a few on Saturday afternoon. It is now important that we have some firm direction on how to proceed to policing of further protests.”
