Public Order Act 1986: New Testament

Lord Monson asked Her Majesty's Government:

The Minister of State, Home Office (Baroness Scotland of Asthal): It is for the courts to decide, in any case which is brought before them by the proper authorities, whether an offence has been committed. Cases have to be dealt with in context but we consider it unlikely that such conduct will be an offence.

Questions for Written Answer

Lord Jopling asked the Leader of the House:

The Lord President of the Council (Baroness Amos): There is no constitutional justification for the setting of deadlines for Written Questions. The House agrees deadlines for Written Answers itself, and endorsed the 14-day deadline on 8 February 1995.

Lord Selsdon asked Her Majesty's Government:
