Prevention of Terrorism Bill — Rejection of New Lords' Clause — Review by Privy Council — 9 Mar 2005 at 19:34

Andrew Smith MP, Oxford East voted with the majority (Aye).

The Aye-voters rejected a new Clause that was inserted after Clause 11 of the Prevention of Terrorism Bill that would have required the Act (which this Bill would eventually become) to be reviewed by a committee of five members of the Privy Council (senior parliamentarians) within eight months of it becoming law.

The actual text of this rejected Clause can be found under "Amendment No. 31" in the list of Lords' amendments.
