Counter-Terrorism Bill — Disallow inquests without a jury in England and Wales — rejected — 10 Jun 2008 at 21:45

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Islington North voted in the minority (Aye).

The majority No voters rejected an amendment[1] to the Counter-Terrorism Bill. The amendment would have deleted clause 65 from the Bill which enables the Secretary of State to order a coroner's inquest to take place without a jury. However, it was defeated.

This vote applied only to England and Wales. A separate clause in the bill dealt with Northern Ireland, the position there was unaffected by this vote.

The main aims of the Counter-Terrorism Bill were to[2]:

  • Allow longer terrorism sentences
  • Change some of the rules around intercept evidence
  • Allow the assets of convicted terrorists to be seized
  • Allow greater use of DNA samples and enable the police to take the fingerprints or DNA from those subject to control orders
