    Drug Piracy Bill 2007, LibertariansA bill increasing the severity of Drug Piracy as a crime.

    Drug Piracy is an increasingly prevalant crime perpetrated by organised criminal groups. Although production of pirated drugs is not commonplace in Britain, many of those who run such operations are based in the United Kingdom. Sale of pirated drugs can often result in death for those who fail to receive effective medicine.

    BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-

    - Those who are convicted of complicitly and knowingly partaking in the production of counterfeit drugs be issued with a life sentence.

    As above - I support the principle, but won't vote for the life sentence bit. I'd be happy to see the Libertarians re-submit this bill.

    Yeah, my "*******s" comment earlier was in that I totally forgot about the deadline; I was intending to submit a (hitherto unwritten) ammendment as a 2nd reading but forgot. Oh well, we'll go back to the drawing board on this one.

    Since there were not any of the amendments made I cannot vote for this bill. Potentially I could have.

    Could the bill still be withdrawn to allow a resubmission of an amended bill in a few days time?

    Voting can be ceased if you want, then an ammended bill can be submitted whenever. It would be another first reading though, but that shouldn't matter too much
