Magical Practitioner Registration Act
An archaic law that has been in place for decades. The House of Commons has to vote on upholding the law for renewal, which has caused terrorist groups to emerge.
The law requires registration of individuals with magic or magic-like powers for government use and public safety. Unknown to the general public, government agencies and corporations have used this database in the past for recruitment of special individuals, like those part of Team 6.
The law went into effect in the year 2027, and was designed to strictly control the use of magic in Great Britain. This, along with heavily increased amounts of censorship, surveillance, and other types of control, formed the body of procedure by which the government maintained control for over 5 decades. Since then, as magic has become commonplace in day-to-day life, and with the revocation of the Office of the Lord Protectorate, it is more or less a formality, with negative consequences such as persecution happening quite rarely.
