Reform Section 5 - Victory!

On 14 January 2013, the Government agreed to reform Section 5 of the Public Order Act by removing the word “insulting”. The reform gives more protection for free speech. The campaign was supported by a wide coalition of groups including The Christian Institute, the National Secular Society, the Peter Tatchell Foundation and others.
