Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — Amendment to Clause 89 — Identification at a Police Station — 26 Nov 2001 at 20:45

The Aye-voters failed to make a series of changes to Clause 89 (or Clause 90 of the final act) of the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Bill which adds a new clause into the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984.

This Clause allows someone who is detained at a police station to be fingerprinted or searched for a birthmark that would identify them to the police. The change that was proposed (and rejected) would have inserted in the phrase "in connection with a terrorist investigation" in several crucial parts of this law. As it stands, this Act extends the power of the police in areas that are unconnected with Terrorism.
