Demonstrations in the Vicinity of Parliament Bill

12 October 2010

The Demonstrations in the Vicinity of Parliament (Removal of Authorisation Requirements) Bill received its first reading in the House of Lords on Monday 11 October.

The Bill, which repeals sections 132 to 138 of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005, was introduced by Lord Tyler.

A date for the second reading of the Bill – a general debate on all aspects of the Bill – is yet to be scheduled.

Further information

The second reading of the Bill usually takes place two weeks after the first reading. The government Minister or a senior spokesperson in the Lords for the government department responsible for the Bill opens the debate. Second reading provides the first opportunity for Members of the Lords to discuss the purpose of a Bill and its main principles.
