'A Century of Emergency Legislation: The Defence of the Realm Act to Civil Contingencies Act' - Jonathan Swan
13 Mar

The Defence of the Realm Act (DORA) during the War was a major over-reaction to combat perceived security concerns and was thoroughly disliked by the UK population. In this talk Jonathon will look at the lessons learned from DORA and how its legacy influenced subsequent emergency powers legislation in 1920, 1939, and 2004.
