Terrorist Asset-Freezing (Temporary Provisions) Bill (Allocation of Time) — Clause 1 — Temporary validity of certain Orders in Council — 8 Feb 2010 at 20:00
Robert Smith MP, West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine voted with the majority (No).
The majority of MPs voted against introducing shortening the time in which Terrorist Asset-Freezing (Temporary Provisions) Bill was to have effect.
Mark Hoban MP, speaking in favour of the defeated amendment, said:
- It seems to us that measures that were described in the court ruling as draconian should not be kept in place for up to 10 months on the basis of a three clause Bill that perpetuates some of the failings of the underlying orders.
The amendment voted on was:
- page 1, line 3, leave out 31 December 2010 and insert 31 March 2010
-  Mark Hoban MP, House of Commons, 8th February 2010
