    B1104 – Coming Armed to Parliament Act 1313 Repeal Bill 2017, ByronicHero (seconded by Quamquam123 MP)

    An Act to abolish The Coming Armed to Parliament Act 1313.

    If a gentleman wants to wear armour in the Houses of Parliament he should be at liberty to do so. Furthermore, this Act is very vague. Can a person wear under-armour to help them achieve a more streamlined figure, or better athletic performance? Can workmen wear protective clothing? If the world needs to be saved by Tony Stark, and the culprit is in the Houses of Parliament, we are screwed. Surely we cannot allow this to persist.

    This isn't a joke bill. This law is just more evidence of a history of draconian lawmaking by successive governments, and is an affront to society.

    It also discriminates against Knights and Space Marine Terminators, neither of which are protected by the Equality Act 2010.

    BE IT ENACTED by the Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

    1 Repeal

    (1) The Coming Armed to Parliament Act 1313 is hereby repealed.

    2. Commencement, short title and extent

    (1) This may be cited as the Coming Armed to Parliament Repeal Act 2017
    (2) This act shall extend to England; and
    (3) Shall come into force immediately following Royal Assent; and
    (4) Shall be provided to the Welsh Assembly Government for their consideration; and
    (5) Subject to changes made by the National Assembly for Wales; and
    (6) Subject to an affirmative vote shall come into force immediately following Royal Assent.

    Freedom to wear what you want should be a cornerstone of our society; it is intrinsically linked to freedom of expression.

    Spare me...

    Why are the notes at the top? Why are there pictures in the notes? It's like asking a 12 year old what he would do if he could only pass one law

    These joke bills are becoming tedious.

    People should be allowed to wear what they want. Knights and cyborgs shouldn't be discriminated because they choose too wear armour

    Because I felt like it.

    I don't need any other reason.

    If you don't like it, try to do something about it

    Please could you provide research indicating the Act in question maintains its force in 2017?

    It rather depends on what you will count as research. There is a Wikipedia page which references the Crown Prosecution Service saying that the law is still in force today.

    Predictably, the cited source was a BBC article :facepalm2:

    I did find the Law Society confirming it though if that helps: https://twitter.com/lslawlibrary/sta...62374386024448
