Counter-Terrorism Bill — Control orders only without prospect of prosecution — rejected — 10 Jun 2008 at 18:15

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

The majority of MPs voted against adding a new condition into the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005[1] which said that a control order could only be made by the Secretary of State against an individual only when the Director of Public Prosecutions --

  • "has certified that certified that there is no reasonable prospect of successfully prosecuting the subject of the order for a terrorism-related offence"[2]

or the urgency of the case requires the order to be made without court permission.[3]
