Chris Chope welcomes Government response.

 

Chris Chope’s letter in The Times on Monday 18th June, in which he demanded that the Government bring in its own Bill to criminalise the practice of upskirting has received a positive response.  The Government published its own Bill on Thursday 21st June, the text of which is different from the original Private Members Bill.  Chris Chope commented “This is a vindication of my actions in Parliament to ensure that legislation is properly debated and scrutinised.  I much appreciate the widespread support which I have received for defending this important aspect of Parliamentary democracy.”
