Counter Terrorism Bill

EDM number 1048 in 2007-08, proposed by Alistair Carmichael on 26/02/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Administration of justice, Devolution, Terrorism and Criminal law.

That this House notes with concern Clause 27 (Jurisdiction to try offences committed in the UK) in the Counter Terrorism Bill, which would allow terrorism offences committed in Scotland to be tried in any court in the United Kingdom; recognises that the constitutional independence of the Scottish legal system was recognised in the Act of Union in 1707; believes that Clause 27 represents an unjustified and unconstitutional attack on the integrity of the independent Scottish legal system; and calls on UK Ministers to support an Amendment to remove Clause 27 from the Counter Terrorism Bill.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
