Terrorism Act (Amendment) Bill 2018

A bill to implement recommendations of the Anderson review (2015) on the operation of the Terrorism Act 2000 and Part 1 of the Terrorism Act 2006


BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's [King'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: -

1. Amendments to the Terrorism Act 2000
(1) The Terrorism Act 2000 is amended as follows.
(2) In section 1(1)(b) (Terrorism: interpretation), for the phrase “the use or threat is designed to influence the government” to be replaced by “designed to compel, coerce or undermine the government or an international organisation”;
(3) After Schedule 8 (Detention), paragraph 32 (Grounds for extension), that the following clauses are inserted:
(a) “the person to whom the application relates was lawfully arrested”;
(b) “the person was told with sufficient clarity the offences he was suspected of committing and the reasons for the suspicions leading to his arrest”;
(c) “there is a real prospect of evidence emerging during the period for which further detention is sought”;
(d) “the continued detention is proportionate in all the circumstances”.
(4) After subsection 5 of section 41 (Arrest without warrant), that the following is inserted:
(a) “Where a person is arrested under this section, police can grant bail where it is safe to do so”
(5) After Schedule 7 (Port and Border Controls), paragraph 18 (Offences), that the following paragraph is inserted:
(a) “There will be a statutory bar to the introduction of Schedule 7 admissions in a subsequent criminal trial”

2. Repeals
(1) In section 1 (Terrorism: interpretation), that subsection 3 is repealed.

7. Extent, Commencement and Short Title
(1) This Act extends to the whole of the United Kingdom.
(2) This Act may be cited as the Terrorism Act (Amendment) Act 2018.
(3) The Act will come into force on 31st March 2018.

Notes
This bill puts into action recommendations made by David Anderson QC, a previous Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation. In his report, he discusses terrorism legislation at great length noting flaws whilst further informing the public and ourselves on anti-terrorism in our country. A noteworthy element of this document is narrowing the definition of terrorism itself and therefore lessening its broadness.
