Terrorism Bill — Clause 1(2) — Offence of Glorifying Terrorism — 2 Nov 2005 at 15:57
David Laws MP, Yeovil voted against making glorifying the commission or preparation of acts of terrorism an offense.
The majority of MPs voted to make glorifying the commission or preparation of acts of terrorism an offense.
Subsection (2) says:
- ...[S]tatements that are likely to be understood by members of the public as indirectly encouraging... acts of terrorism... include every statement which-
- (a) glorifies the commission or preparation (whether in the past, in the future or generally) of such acts or offences; and
- (b) is a statement from which those members of the public could reasonably be expected to infer that what is being glorified is being glorified as conduct that should be emulated in existing circumstances.
- This provision interprets subsection (1) which asserts that both direct and indirect encouragement of terrorism is an offence.
