Westminster Council

 by phil , Tue Mar 01, 2011 1:45 pm

After cutting £5 million from the budget of homeless hostels in the borough, Conservative Westminster Council is now bringing out a new bylaw. It will be an offence punishable by a fine to: "Sleep or lie down, deposit materials used as bedding" and to "give out , or permit another to give out food for free".

Way to go Westminster Council kick all the homeless out on to the street and then fine them for being there. The thing is I'd like to know how they can legislate that I can't give a hungry person something to eat on the street. Does this mean if I go to London on a day trip I can't give my grandchildren anything to eat on the street?
