Terrorism (Northern Ireland) Bill — New Clause 1 — Mode of Trial on Indictment — 30 Nov 2005 at 14:00

Jo Swinson MP, East Dunbartonshire voted in the minority (Aye).

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

I congratulate the Government on their sensible handling of the timetable for this legislation. This is one occasion on which there has been no issue of process, but there has been an issue of content. For that reason, I am sure that we can dispense with the business fairly quickly today, even though three important issues are up for debate. The first is the issue of the mode of trial.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 46, Noes 370.
