I hope that the Minister will respond to those points. The Government clearly...

Public Bill Committee: Protection of Freedoms Bill (22 Mar 2011)

Lord Macdonald: I agree with what Keir Starmer said about this very recently. It is possible to make an argument of that sort. I have never looked into it in detail and certainly do not fall down on that side. I think he is right that you take a robust view of the law in this sort of case, and you get on with it.

I am really interested to see whether there is a way...
