Lord Walney is the UK Government’s independent adviser on political violence and disruption.

Lord Walney’s report, published on 21 May and entitled Protecting our Democracy from Coercion, is an independent report. Therefore, the Home Secretary is not able to make any amends to it.

It would be for Lord Walney as the report’s author to consider any necessary alterations.
