Police Powers and the Coronavirus – Civil Contingencies Act 2004

Dijen Basu QC speaks about the Civil Contingencies Act 2004.
This is one of a series of new video blogs by barristers from Serjeants’ Inn relating to the current emergency. They were recorded on Friday 20th March 2020. In them, we discuss the police powers, obligations and duties which will be created in emergency legislation due to be enacted on Monday 23rd March 2020, as well as HM Government’s emergency powers.
Obviously, nothing in these blogs amounts to the giving of individual legal advice.
