Belmarsh Judgment — 8 Feb 2005 at 18:50
David Laws MP, Yeovil voted in the minority (Aye).
I beg to move,
That this House calls on the Government to respond to the House of Lords judgment on Belmarsh with a system of dealing with terror suspects which does not require a derogation from European Convention on Human Rights obligations and which enshrines the principle that decisions on restrictions on individual liberties are taken by the courts and not politicians.
I beg to move, To leave out from "House" to end and add:
"notes with approval the Government's intention to respond to the House of Lords judgment on Belmarsh by continuing to take all necessary measures to protect the security of the country and its citizens while acting in compliance with the European Convention on Human Rights."
