British Bill Against Bias to Include Religious Discrimination

An amendment to the Race Relations Act of 1965 which would also include religious discrimination, was introduced into Parliament today by Lord Fenner Brockway.

The amendment contains a clause prohibiting discrimination in clubs and would make it an offense not only to “stir up hatred” against a section of the public on racial grounds, but would also ban the promoting of “contempt” for a section of the public on racial grounds.
