HC Deb 13 July 1993 vol 228 c463W
Mr. Watson

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has to criminalise racial harassment and to make racial harassment an aggravation of existing crimes.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

[holding answer 12 July 1993]: The Government have no plans to introduce a new offence of racial harassment. Aggravating factors such as racial harassment can be taken into account for sentencing purposes.
