Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — Removal of Sunset Clause — 12 Dec 2001 at 23:15

The Aye-voters rejected the decision of the House of Lords to insert a "sunset clause" into the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill.

The text of this clause can be found on page 74 of their version of the Bill as clause number 125 "expiry". It states that part 4 of the Act should cease to exist after one year, parts 3, 5, 10, 11, 13 should cease to exist after 2 years, parts 1, 2, 6-9, 14 of the Act should cease to exist after 5 years, while part 14 could go on indefinitely, although the Secretary of State can extend any part for an extra year if approved by a vote in Parliament.
