HC Deb 20 July 1982 vol 28 cc80-1W
Miss Richardson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department which local Acts contain a criminal offence of failure to give notice of a procession to the police; and, in respect of these Acts, how long is the notice period required.

Mr. Mayhew

This information for England and Wales is collated centrally only in respect of local Acts passed since 1974. It is as follows:

Enactment Period of notice Hours
County of South Glamorgan Act 1976 36
County of Merseyside Act 1980 72
West Midlands County Council Act 1980 *72
Cheshire County Council Act 1980 *72
Isle of Wight Act 1980 *72
Greater Manchester Act 1981 *72
East Sussex Act 1981 *72
* or as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter.

All pre-1974 local authority enactments now in force in England and Wales will expire by the end of 1986.
