Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords] — Schedule 3 — Court Security — 26 Apr 2004 at 21:02

Miss Ann Widdecombe MP, Maidstone and The Weald voted in the minority (No).

I beg to move amendment No. 2, in page 18, line 3, at end insert-

'(aa) a statutory officer (within the meaning of section 70 of the Judicature (Northern Ireland) Act 1978) who is exercising functions in the building,'.

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

The criminal justice system in Northern Ireland is undergoing a journey of reform that was started by the criminal justice review, and today's debates represent another important step in that journey. The post-review criminal justice environment in Northern Ireland is characterised by a commitment to reform and modernisation. That can be seen not only in the Bill, but in the range of initiatives being taken elsewhere.

Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:-

The House divided: Ayes 294, Noes 102.
