GCN Webinar this Thursday at 4:30pm: On police powers and the Coronavirus Act 2020: is Lord Sumption right?

5 April 2020

In this new age of the Coronavirus, where innocent pastimes attract police attention and arguably sensible measures to enforce social distancing may result in police fines, Pete Weatherby Q.C., Mira Hammad, Christian Weaver and Mark George Q.C. discuss police powers under the Coronavirus Act 2020, what they mean and how they have been implemented so far.

Is Lord Sumption right: have we entered a police state or are the police doing no more than is necessary to keep us all safe?

This webinar is provided for free, and will take place remotely.
