  • ‘No’ to buffer zones


    Calls for buffer zones to be introduced outside abortion clinics to stop patients being harassed were rejected by Home Secretary Sajid Javid on 13 September.

    He said such protest-free areas around clinics in England and Wales ‘would not be a proportionate response’. A Home Office review found cases of harassment and damaging behaviour but they were ‘not the norm’, with most activities being ‘more passive’ such as showing banners and praying.

  • Scouts settle

    Christian Concern

    The Scout Association agreed in late August to settle a discrimination claim of a Christian who was expelled from the association after he had sent a letter questioning its promotion of Islam and Pride events.

    He donated his compensation to the organisation that had supported his case.
