I created this page because I am not satisfied with the approach to the organisation of this kind of material adopted by Great Reform Bill. James500 (discusscontribs) 19:10, 16 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In respect of this, I think the clause as currently drafted is dis-proportinate. Ideally, the level of penalty should be proportinate to the level of distress or injury the supposed action (to be undertaken by the co-erced person) and to the nature of the alleged legal matter that was being threatened.

I make this point because a public official wrongly advising someone that they could face a prosecution for failure to install certain fire equipment, is of a different character to a child protection official coercing someone into handing over a vulnerebale child where there was no legal authority for such a seizure.
