Commander Brian Paddick

EDM number 1018 in 2001-02, proposed by Jon Owen Jones on 18/03/2002.

That this House deplores the witch-hunt currently underway against Brian Paddick, until recently the Commander of the Lambeth Police Force; deplores the homophobic nature of many of the smears and innuendoes directed against him; finds it extraordinary the Metropolitan Police has taken action against him on the basis of a previous boyfriend once having committed acts the Home Office has now decided are no more serious than a parking offence; and congratulates Commander Paddick for having the integrity and bravery to speak his mind on policing issues and hopes this episode will not discourage other policemen from doing the same in the future.

This motion has been signed by a total of 42 MPs.
