Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 — Privy Counsel Report — 25 Feb 2004 at 18:43
The majority of MPs voted against recommendations by Privy Counsellor Review Committee to urgently replace the Part 4 of the Act powers which allow for foreign nationals to be detained indefinitely.
They did this by voting against changing the motion for debate from:
- This House
- takes note of the Privy Counsellor Review Committee Report on the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 Review (HC 100), which was laid before this House on 18th December 2003.
- This House
- welcomes the Privy Counsellor Review Committee Report on the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001; and
- calls upon the Government to act on the Committee's recommendation to repeal Part 4 of the Act and replace it with alternative provisions for monitoring and prosecuting suspected terrorists which do not require the suspension of basic human rights.
This review by seven members of the Privy Counsel was stipulated in the original Act.
