Prevention of Terrorism Bill — Rejection of Lords' Amendment — Human Rights Obligations — 9 Mar 2005 at 20:10
Sir Robert Smith MP, West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine voted in the minority (No).
The Aye-voters rejected the change proposed by the House of Lords to the Prevention of Terrorism Bill, as detailed under Amendment No. 40, which deleted a set of lines across pages 17 and 18 on a version of the Bill I can't find, and replaced them with the paragraph:
The rules of court must comply with the United Kingdom’s obligations under Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
This article guarentees right of free trial, right to hear charges brought against you, presumption of innocence until proven guilty, and other fundamental precepts of our Western judicial system.
