Blackpool Christian Cafe And Lancashire Constabulary
That this House notes with concern the recent misinterpretation by Lancashire Police officers of public order legislation that resulted in police officers visiting a Christian cafe in Blackpool in relation to the display of Bible texts on the premises; further notes that this is not the first occasion that Lancashire Police have sparked such a controversy following an incident in 2005 that resulted in an out of court settlement; calls on the Chief Constable of Lancashire Police to ensure that all police officers in Lancashire Constabulary are properly trained in public order legislation; and further calls on the Home Secretary to engage with senior police officers to ensure that there is no repeat of this incident.
This motion has been signed by a total of 12 MPs.
