Protection of Freedoms Bill – Public Reading Stage

On 11 February 2011, the Coalition Government published the Protection of Freedoms Bill, containing ‘a raft of measures to restore hard-won British liberties that have been lost in recent years’.

Some of the measures came from the 14,000 ideas left on the Your Freedom website.

The Coalition Government also launched the first stage of plans to give members of the public the right to comment on every aspect of new legislation: through a new pilot public reading stage, members of the public will be able to comment on each clause of the Protection of Freedoms Bill.
