Terrorism Bill — Clause 17 — Commission of offences abroad — 3 Nov 2005 at 16:45

Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs voted in the minority (Aye).

Those voting Aye wished to add an extra condition to subsection (1) of Clause 17 of the Terrorism Bill.

Clause 17(1) says:

If a person does anything outside the United Kingdom... [that] if done in a part of the United Kingdom, would constitute a [terrorist] offence [listed in] subsection (2), he shall be guilty in that part of the United Kingdom of the offence.

And the change was to insert the extra provision that:

... the action involves harm or the threat of harm to a national of the United Kingdom.
