Terrorism Act 2006 (Disapplication of Section 25) Order 2010 — 14 Jul 2010 at 17:11

The majority of MPs voted to keep the maximum period of detention without charge of terrorist suspects at 28 days.

This was the effect of the approval of Terrorism Act 2006 (Disapplication of Section 25) Order 2010[1]. The motion voted on read:

  • That the draft Terrorism Act 2006 (Disapplication of Section 25) Order 2010, which was laid before this House on 24 June, be approved.

Had this order not been approved the maximum period for detention without trial of terrorist suspects would have reduced to 14 days through the effect of the provision in section 25(5) of the Terrorism Act 2006
