Terrorism Bill — Clause 6(1) — Training for Terrorism — 3 Nov 2005 at 14:30

Simon Burns MP, West Chelmsford did not vote.

Those voting Aye wished to change subsection (1) Clause 6 of the Terrorism Bill which says:

A person commits an offence if... at the time he provides... [training in techniques capable of being done for the purposes of terrorism] he knows or suspects that a person receiving it intends to use the skills... [for] acts of terrorism.

by removing the words "or suspects".

Does this mean if you are more paranoid and suspicious of strangers you are more likely to be found guilty according to this law?
