The Home Affairs Committee conducted pre-legislative scrutiny of the Bill and published a report in July 2023. The Committee welcomed the Government’s overall intention behind the Bill, but expressed ‘serious concerns’ about its proportionality, especially in relation to the impact on small businesses, voluntary and community-run organisations.

The Government has not yet responded to the Committee. 

The Government has published a series of overarching documents on the Bill, including the Explanatory Notes, Impact assessment and Memorandum to the Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee.
