The majority of MPs voted against making the continued participation of the United Kingdom in the European Arrest Warrant a negotiating objective during negotiations over the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.
MPs were considering the Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill.
The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Continued participation in the European Arrest Warrant and stated:
- “(1) It is an objective of the Government, in negotiating the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, to seek continued United Kingdom participation in the European Arrest Warrant in relation to persons suspected of specified terrorism offences.
- (2) In this section, “specified terrorism offences” has the same meaning as Schedule 15 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003.”
The rejected new clause was accompanied by the following explanatory statement:
- This new clause would require the Government to adopt the continued participation of the UK in the European Arrest Warrant in relation to people suspected of terrorist offences as a negotiating objective in the withdrawal negotiations with the European Union.
