9th of January, 2020 (excerpt) Siân Berry questions Sir Stephen House, Deputy Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, about who had final sign off on the decision – later declared unlawful by the High Court – to completely ban Extinction Rebellion protests in London from 14 October. A section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986 was issued at 9pm on 14 October, effectively banning all Extinction Rebellion protests in London. The High Court found the blanket ban had gone beyond the powers granted to police through the Public Order Act. Full ‘Police and Crime Committee’ broadcast here: https://youtu.be/sGNv–Kb-fk
