It'll be interesting to see how the new Government handle this.

Re: Section 44 Appeal Rejected

John,

As mentioned in our other "topical thread" (http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...t=10062&page=2), I guess it may take some time for this to filter down to the ground, although I would expect it to take proportionately less time than a photography-specific guidance note. This is because it covers a wider remit.

These are exciting times: Having had the burden of stopping and searching removed from them the police may be able to redirect resources towards other high-priority crime areas, which can only be a good thing for us.

Nick

But it remains, for the moment, The Law - even if it is not Legal. However the threat of civil damages may be more of an incentive than guidance from APCO. But the onus is now on the UK government is to reformulate or repeal the law.

Re: Section 44 Appeal Rejected

At the end of the article it refers to central London being a stop search area since 2001. It also features s44 of the anti terror legislation.

I wonder if the stop search area is anything to do with the terror legislation or if it has been put in place under s.60 Public Order Act?

It's all very complicated

For me what all this illustrates is what happens when governments introduce laws as a knee jerk reaction to situations. Look at the hand gun laws brought in as a reaction to Dunblane, hasn't really done it's job of reducing gun crime!
