Lower House returns legitimate defence bill to commission

Request from centrists upheld amid protests from Northern League

(ANSA) - Rome, April 21 - The Lower House on Thursday upheld a request from centrist group Area Popolare (AP) for a bill on legitimate defence to return to the justice commission amid controversy over a Democratic Party (PD) amendment that has allegedly significantly watered down the original proposal brought by the anti-immigrant Northern League.
    The chamber approved the request with a majority of 160 votes as League MPs brandished placards reading "defence is always legitimate" and shouted "shame" at members of the PD.
