Control Orders — Annual renewal 2007 — 22 Feb 2007 at 14:15
Robert Smith MP, West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine voted in the minority (No).
The majority of MPs voted to renewed the powers to impose Control Orders outlined in the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, for further year.
This vote was part of the process of a weak sunset clause, where the legislation remains in force on the basis of a single debate and vote in parliament. A strong subset clause would have meant that the legislation couldn't be renewed so easily, and any extensions of the powers would need to go through the usual procedures for passing legislation.
