Terrorism Bill — Extension Of Period Of Detention to 90 Days — 9 Nov 2005 at 16:30

Peter Soulsby MP, Leicester South voted with the majority (No).

The majority of MPs voted against extending the period of police detention of a terrorist suspects without presenting charges of a crime to 90 days.

They did this by voting against the restatement from "3 months" to "ninety days"[1] of the time limit proposed in the bill.[2]

Had this restatement been allowed, then all further amendments to revise this proposal downwards (to 28 days in the case of the next vote)[3] would have been blocked.[4]

Note to readers: This is the first Government defeat in a whipped vote since 1997, managing to overturn their majority of 66.
