Prevention of Terrorism Bill — Rejection of Lords' Amendment — Rules of the Court — 9 Mar 2005 at 19:58

The Aye-voters rejected the change made by the House of Lords to the Schedule of the Prevention of Terrorism Bill which would have removed three sub-paragraphs (see Amendment No. 38) and replaced them with:

The relevant rules of court shall be made by the Lord Chief Justice after consulting the Lord Chancellor.

(Unfortunately, I can't quite track down what those missing paragraphs said because there were further alternative amendments made by the Commons and the different versions of the Bill are not easy to track.)
