Responded:25 May 2021

The Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) can confirm that we did not provide a written submission nor were we consulted on issues of protest related legislation.  PFEW did not proactively put forward anything in connection with this, therefore there are no notes or minutes or correspondence in relation.

In John Apter’s oral evidence to the Public Bill Select Committee on Tuesday 18 May, he confirmed that PFEW had not been consulted with on Part 3 of the Bill that relates to public order.
