Police and Justice Bill — New Clause 8 — Extradition to the United States of America — 10 May 2006 at 17:45

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

Those voting No rejected a proposal which would have changed the effect of the Statutory Instrument 2003 No. 3334 which refers to the Extradition Act 2003. This would have made it harder for the United States to extradite British citizens to their territory.

The intent was to roll back the powers of a US/UK extradition treaty that had not been ratified by the US and maintain some principles of reciprocity.

The clause was being proposed as a rider for the Police and Justice Bill in which it arguably doesn't belong, in an attempt to address the pending extradition case of the Enron bankers.
