The measures which Kettering MP Philip Hollobone is introducing include proposals to ban people from wearing face coverings in public places.

The westbound carriageway between junctions 9 and 7 will shut from 8pm at night until 6am in the morning all this week.
Project manager, Mike Hall said:
"We endeavour to avoid overnight working as far as possible, however we cannot do these works during the day. There may be some disturbance to local residents... but we will of course do our best to minimise this by doing the noisiest work as early as possible during the closure period."
Police patrols have been stepped up around schools in the north of Kettering after a number of children were robbed at knifepoint on their way home.
It is believed a gang of between three and five teenage boys carried out a series of robberies between Tuesday 4 February and Sunday 9 February.
In all the incidents a gang of between three and five youths stole mobile phones from the children and threatened them with knives.
The officer investigating the case, Detective Chief Inspector Steve Woliter, said one of the main issues of concern was the increasing level of violence used.
In the majority of incidents, the gang asked the children for the time before demanding their phones. The gang members are all white boys aged somewhere between 15 and 18-years-old.
