Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day] — US-UK Extradition Treaty — 15 Jul 2009 at 16:01
Jo Swinson MP, East Dunbartonshire voted in the minority (Aye).
The Majority of MPs successfully defeated a motion calling for the immediate review and reform of the Extradition Act 2003. Those supporting the motion argued that there was no reciprocity in US-UK Extradition proceedings.
The defeated motion read:
That this House expresses its very great concern that the Extradition Act 2003 is being undermined by a series of high profile cases that are jeopardising confidence in the extradition system; and calls on the Government to hold immediately a review of the Act with a view to reforming it at the earliest opportunity to deal with the issues of public concern.
