Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — Removal of Sunset Clause — Insistence — 13 Dec 2001 at 22:15
Tom Watson MP, West Bromwich East did not vote.
The Aye-voters insisted on their disagreement with the House of Lord's decision to insert a "sunset clause" into the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill, as they had done in their vote on 12 December 2001. This clause would have put an expiry time on various parts of the Act.
A Bill has to pass both Houses of Parliament before it becomes law, although ultimately, if the House of Lords refuses to back down over something, the House of Commons can cite the Parliament Act and over-rule them if it follows the prescribed procedure.
