Prevention of Terrorism Bill — Amendment to Clause 1 — Power to make control orders — 28 Feb 2005 at 21:45

Elfyn Llwyd MP, Meirionnydd Nant Conwy voted to give a greater role to the courts in relation to the imposition of control orders.

The majority of MPs voted against giving a greater role to the courts in relation to the imposition of control orders.

The Aye-voters failed to make a series of changes to the text of the Prevention of Terrorism Bill

These changes for the most part replaced "Secretary of State" with "court". For example, the phrase "The Secretary of State may make a control order against an individual" would become "The Secretary of State may apply to the court for a control order...".
