I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

My new clause arises out of concerns expressed to us by the Police Federation. In Committee, on 16 October, Jan Berry, the police officer who gave evidence, said that she shared the concerns that I put to her:

“currently, officers only have the right to request to see passports, and that many individuals—for example, those subject to a football banning order—are acutely aware of that and decline”.——[Official Report, Criminal Justice and Immigration Public Bill Committee, 16 October 2007; c. 57, Q110.]
