Question for Home Office

UIN HL15288, tabled on 24 April 2019

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 3 April (HL14707), whether the Home Office provides any particular guidance to police officers in relation to freedom of speech and street preachers; whether police officers receive training on religious literacy; and if so, whether any such training is mandatory.

The Home Office has not issued guidance to the police in relation to freedom of speech and street preachers. The training of police officers is an operational matter for the police.
