Offence of concealing your identity in a public place.
Petition to require: The introduction of legislation to make it an offence to deliberately conceal your identity in a public place.
This to include all manner of facial coverings whether by the use of masks, make-up, balaclavas, oversize hoods and other head dress or ‘religious’ veils and scarves or similar.
The intention of the petition being to permit improved social interaction and the easier identification of the increasing number of people whose identity is deliberately concealed for illegal motives.
There should be only very few exceptions to accommodate occupational circumstances (e.g. emergency service personnel's use of safety equipment).
This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:
There is already an e-petition about this issue.
