Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — Terrorist certification by Home Secretary — 21 Nov 2001 at 20:31
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
The majority of MPs voted in favour of a scheme whereby the Home Secretary could issue a certificate against a person whose presence in the United Kingdom he reasonably believes is a risk to national security, and whom he reasonably suspects is a terrorist.
A "terrorist" is defined as someone who is or was concerned in the preparation or instigation of acts of international terrorism, or has links to an international terrorist group.
A late government amendment had inserted the word "reasonably" into the above sentence.
A later vote established the powers of indefinite detention against someone who is subject to such a certificate.
Only subsections (1)-(5) and (7) of clause 21 appeared in this version of the Bill at this stage.
