Prevention of Terrorism Bill — Rejection of New Lords' Amendment — Sunset Clause — 9 Mar 2005 at 19:45

Robert Smith MP, West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine voted in the minority (No).

The Aye-voters rejected the insertion by the House of Lords of a new clause into the Prevention of Terrorism Bill. This clause is listed as Amendment No. 33, and reads in full:

Limitation: This Act and any order made under it shall by virtue of this section cease to have effect on 30th November 2005.

This is an example of what is commonly known as a Sunset Clause.
