Monday 2nd July
The Sunday Times has reported that the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, has added his personal support to our campaign to Reform Section 5.
The article, which took over all of page 10, can be viewed online (behind the pay-wall) HERE.
Marie Woolf, Sunday Times Whitehall Editor, writes that Government sources said repeal was “long overdue” and the status quo was backed by “just a few civil servants and some police officers”.
A spokesman for Clegg said: “It is something that has support on all sides of the house. It would be a sensible move to repeal it.”
The House of Lords will debate the issue on Wednesday night, 4th July.
