Terrorist Asset-Freezing (Temporary Provisions) Bill (Allocation of Time) — Clause 1 — Temporary validity of certain Orders in Council — 8 Feb 2010 at 21:00

Andrew Smith MP, Oxford East voted with the majority (Aye).

During the debate the Labour Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury described the clause being voted on as one[1]:

  • that prevents terrorists from having access to financing or the financial system.

The Liberal Democrats objected, and voted against, due to the lack of safeguards such as an appeals process, as they had explained during a division on a proposed amendment to clause 1[2]
