The relevant provisions of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act were brought into force on 19 December 2011. The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has used the powers under Section 143 of the PRSR Act 2011 to remove encampments from Parliament Square.

The management of Parliament Square, including operational decisions to keep the square clear of encampments, is a matter for the Metropolitan Police, Westminster City Council and the Greater London Authority.
