Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill — [1st Allotted Day] — New Clause 6 — Interception of communications — 7 Feb 2005 at 19:00

John Baron MP, Billericay voted in the minority (Aye).

At the time of this debate, communications that had been intercepted by law enforcement agencies in the UK could not be presented as evidence in criminal court cases. The clause that was being voted on sought to remove this restriction so that intercepted communications would be admisible as evidence.

The no voters rejected the clause, therefore keeping the law unchanged.
