Intimidation in Public Life: A Review by the Committee on Standards in Public Life

Details

In recent years, the intimidation experienced by Parliamentary candidates, and others in public life, has become a threat to the diversity, integrity, and vibrancy of representative democracy in the UK.

The Committee reports on its review of intimidation in public life, including Parliamentary candidates and others.

The Committee makes a package of recommendations for action to government, social media companies, political parties, the police, broadcast and print media, and MPs and Parliamentary candidates themselves.

The Government’s response to the review was published in March 2018.
