Terrorism Bill — 16 Mar 2006 at 15:45
David Laws MP, Yeovil voted in the minority (No).
Those voting Aye passed the removed the Lord's amendments to the Terrorism Bill and made some minor changes to the original text. This was done with the motion:
That this House insists on its disagreement with the Lords in their Amendments 5, 11, 31 and 34 and insists on its Amendment 34B but does not insist on its disagreement with the Lords in their Amendment 28 and proposes the following Amendment in lieu:—
I can find no easy presentation of these numbered amendments on a web-page to explain what is meant.
The extra change was to insert into Clause 2(8) "Dissemination of terrorist publications the paragraph:
(8A) The reference in subsection (8) to something that is likely to be understood as an indirect encouragement to... acts of terrorism... includes anything which is likely to be understood as (a) the glorification of... such acts... and (b) a suggestion that what is being glorified is being glorified as conduct that should be emulated in existing circumstances.
This sounds pretty similar to the meaning of what was proposed in Division 195 but rejected. Does anyone know?
