Public Bill Committee - Policing and Crime Bill

The Public Bill Committee recently considered the Policing and Crime Bill. The Committee launched a call for evidence to inform their consideration which ACS responded to.

In ACS’ submission, we raised concerns that if the clause to remove the requirement to lay section 182 licensing guidance in Parliament was removed, the Home Office must provide reassurances that they will hold formal consultation with industry on any future changes they make to it.

ACS also raised concerns that the Policing and Crime Bill should not be used as the legislative vehicle to make Cumulative Impact Policies on a statutory footing. More consultation is required with industry and local authorities to ensure that the statutory nature of CIPs do not push further burdens on businesses.
