Met Police Commissioner and Max Hill QC questioned on threats to MPs

03 May 2019

The Joint Committee on Human Rights examines threats to MPs.

Purpose of the session

What are the Met Police and the CPS doing to protect MPs from threats and abuse? What do these bodies consider to be the right balance between free speech and protest? How do they protect MPs from harm online and offline? Do laws around protesting need to be changed?

The UK Parliament Human Rights Committee will explore these questions first with Max Hill QC, the Director of Public Prosecutions at the CPS, then in a second panel with Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner and her senior colleagues.


Wednesday May 8, Committee Room 1, Palace of Westminster.


  • Max Hill QC, Director of Public Prosecutions, Crown Prosecution Service 


  • Cressida Dick CBE, QPM, Metropolitan Police Commissioner
  • Neil Basu QPM, Assistant Commissioner, Specialist Operations, Metropolitan Police Service 
  • Commander Jane Connors, Commander, Major Operations, covers public order and protest operations for the Met
