Northern Ireland (Sentences) Bill — 15 Jun 1998

I beg to move amendment No. 1, in clause 3, page 2, leave out lines 23 to 40 and insert--

'(8) A terrorist organisation is an organisation which--

(a) has been concerned in terrorism, or in promoting it, and

(b) has not established or is not maintaining a complete and unequivocal ceasefire.

In the Opposition's view, the Bill goes only some of the way to satisfying those assurances and will, therefore, require amendment in Committee next week. The most serious omission is that it does not establish a clear legislative linkage between some actual decommissioning having taken place and the accelerated release of prisoners."--[ Official Report , 10 June 1998; Vol. 313, c. 1093-94.]

Question put , That the amendment be made:--

The Committee divided: Ayes 125, Noes 274.
