Mr. Grieve: As I should have said earlier, I hope to be able to press new clause 6 to a Division. I realise that it is not perfect. I am sure that it could be improved, and a Report stage would have allowed us to do that, but I believe it encapsulates a process that might commend itself to many Members as an alternative to what the Government propose.

Mr. Beith: It is not really possible to understand how clause 1 works without understanding clauses 7 and 8 and the schedule, because they determine what kind of judicial proceedings can take place. Like all the other clauses apart from clause 1, they have not been debated at all. I trust that proper note will be taken of that in another place. It is surely deplorable that such fundamental alterations and reductions in the fairness of our court processes can be approved in the House of Commons without any debate.

Mr. Win Griffiths: I rise with mixed feelings, having heard an excellent debate. Many speakers have been more eloquent than me, and better informed about the legal processes. They have presented arguments intended to sustain my amendment No. 4 and consequential amendments.

I believe that my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary has been traduced by many Opposition Members, because of the way in which they chose to interpret his letter and our debate about that letter. It is clear from that debate that the Home Secretary was prepared to accept the principle of amendment No. 1, tabled by my right hon. Friend the Member for Livingston (Mr. Cook), and consequential amendments, and my amendment No. 6—also relating to clause 2—and its consequential amendments. However, it was also clear that he was not prepared to    accept amendment No. 4 and consequential

amendments to apply the principle of the court making the decision to the non-derogating orders. We could debate the pros and cons and the nuances of that proposal for another six hours, but I believe that my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Attercliffe (Mr. Betts) was right when he said that, having accepted the court making the decision on derogating orders, there would be no weakening of the fight against terrorism by accepting that for clause 1 and the non-derogating orders. My hon. and learned Friend the Member for Redcar (Vera Baird) pointed out, correctly, that the judicial review process is not strong when one looks at the issues that are at stake with non-derogating orders. Although any one of them did not amount to a loss of liberty, a combination of them could.

Therefore, I hope that, even now, the Home Secretary will say that he would be prepared to accept in principle a change and look at ways of incorporating the principle of the court making the decision on non-derogating orders. I believe that that would make the process involved certain and consistent. By accepting amendment No. 4 along with amendments Nos. 1 and 6, it would mean that liberty and justice were protected in all cases. I hope that, if the Secretary of State cannot accept in principle my amendment, the Committee will have the opportunity to make its own decision.

Question put, That the amendment be made:—

The Committee divided: Ayes 253, Noes 267.
