Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — Amendment to Clause 17 — Disclosure Powers — 26 Nov 2001 at 23:30
Mr David Laws MP, Yeovil voted in the minority (Aye).
This clause authorises the disclosure of information by public authorities listed in schedule 4 for "the purposes of any criminal investigation whatever."
The change (which was rejected) would have subsituted the word "terrorism" for "criminal". Without this change the law allows private information to be shared routinely between all government agencies even when it does not involve terrorism.
