Terrorism Bill — Timetable (No. 2) — 9 Nov 2005 at 13:23

Brooks Newmark MP, Braintree voted in the minority (No).

Those voting Aye were voting for a change to the timetable for debate on the Terrorism Bill, from what it was set down in Division 71.

The change was to give slightly more time than originally planned for the debate, allowing extra time for the numerous divisions that were anticipated to take place while the clock was stopped. The most contentious Clause 23 (extension of period of detention to 90 days) would have a debate lasting three hours, and the debate over clauses 1 to 22 would last a further three hours.

Those voting No were not necessarily in favour of keeping the original shorter timetable; many wanted more time for debate and consideration to take place.
