Policing Of Demonstrations In London On 3rd February

EDM number 1571 in 2005-06, proposed by David TC Davies on 06/02/2006.

That this House notes with dismay the response of the police to the protests which took place in London over the weekend of 3rd February; is appalled that despite the shameful and violent sentiments expressed by protestors no arrests were made; disagrees that a `softly softly' approach was suitable in this instance; contrasts the lack of a police response with the approach adopted towards an anti-war protestor arrested in Whitehall last year; and therefore demands that a full and open inquiry be undertaken to determine how effective the responses were and how the police should best deal with similar instances in the future.

This motion has been signed by a total of 18 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
