Prevention of Terrorism Bill — Programme — Lords' Amendments — 9 Mar 2005 at 15:31

The Aye-voters agreed to a timetable for the discussion of the Prevention of Terrorism Bill (as amended in the House of Lords). The timetable supplimented the one set out on 23 February and changed on 28 February.

The first review of the Lords version of the Bill would last three hours before the changes made by the House of Commons were passed back to the Lords. If the Lords made any more changes (or changed any of the changes back), the Commons would discuss and change the Bill for an hour before sending it back, and this process would proceed until one side backed down.

And so began the longest day in Parliament in decades.
