Remove the urgency procedure from the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act1984

Petition Details

Remove section 45R from the PHA 1984, to prevent misuse of the urgency procedure to implement regulations without parliamentary scrutiny, all references to section 45R should also be removed.

Additional Information

The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 was enacted without an impact assessment & parliamentary review was undertaken post implementation. There is increasing evidence that lockdowns & other NPIs caused harm to large numbers of people.

Children's education was harmed, medical treatment delayed and people's health & fitness substantially reduced. Isolation caused mental health issues, especially for children, elderly & those living alone.
