Prevention of Terrorism Bill — Insisted Again — Courts and Control Orders — 10 Mar 2005 at 32:45
Miss Ann Widdecombe MP, Maidstone and The Weald voted in the minority (No).
This was the one where the courts rather than the secretary of state was to issue these "Control Orders" (house arrest on anyone in the country without charge or the necessity of proof of guilt). There may be some levels of compromise buried in the amendment Nos. 37A-37C, 37E-37O, 37Q-37T, 17H-17M, but I'm bored and can't find them. Perhaps this is how they won the day: by driving everyone into the ground with all this technicality.
