§ Sir David Price
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of the number of county councils seeking powers through private legislation to require notice of street processions, whether he will consider bringing forward public legislation to deal with this matter.
§ Mr. Mayhew
The need for a general requirement is being considered in my right hon. Friend's review of the Public Order Act 1936 and related legislation. He hopes to announce the conclusions of the review in the not too distant future.
