Terrorism Bill — Clause 8 — Attendance at a place used for Terrorist Training — 3 Nov 2005 at 14:36
Robert Smith MP, West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine voted in the minority (Aye).
Clause 8 says, in summary:
[A person commits an offence if he attends at any place, where he could not reasonably have failed to understand, that terrorism training is provided, whether or not he receives the training]
By adding the provision that:
It shall be a defence [against this charge]... [if]... his attendance... was... [to prevent] the... training taking place, [to gather] information..., or involuntary.
By leaving this out, an undercover reporter can be guilty even when exposing or informing on such practices.
