Prevention of Terrorism Bill — Insisted Amendment — Human Rights Obligations — 10 Mar 2005 at 19:25

The Aye-voters "insisted on" the results of the votes the day before in Division 127 and Division 128, which evidently had been overturned in a debate in the House of Lords.

These threw away the requirements that the court which would oversee the process (of issuing Control Orders) would have its rules set by the Lord Chief Justice rather than the Lord Chancellor, and for the rules of the court to comply with Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights (right to hear charges brought against you, innocense until proven guilty, etc).
