Public emergency threatening the life of the nation — approved — 21 Nov 2001 at 22:47

The majority of MPs voted to approve a derogation order[1] from Article 5(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights (the right to be brought before a court following arrest, and the right to liberty unless convicted) as was outlined in the Human Rights Act 1998.[2]

This was a "deferred division" - the debate over it took place two days earlier.[3]

This measure was justified by there being a public emergency threatening the life of the nation within the meaning of Article 15 of the European Convention on Human Rights (time of war) owing to the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States of America.

The purpose of this state of emergency was to legalize the measures in Part 4 of the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, the detention of suspected foreign terrorist suspects indefinitely without charge.[4] The state of emergency was only lifted in April 2005[5] following a judgment in the House of Lords.[6]

An opinion expressed by the Council of Europe, which oversees the implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights, was not impressed by the legislation or its justification.[7]

About the Project

The Public Whip is a not-for-profit, open source website created in 2003 by Francis Irving and Julian Todd and now run by Bairwell Ltd.

There are lots of plans afoot, including extensive redevelopment of the site and plans for new functionality. To keep up with what's happening, please check out the blog. We're working on updating all the contact details throughout the site, but if you'd like to talk to us about the project, please email [email protected]
