Prevention of Terrorism Bill faces a mauling in the House of Lords

"The Prevention of Terrorism Bill faces a mauling in the House of Lords today. .... After a three-day Lords debate, the Bill will return to the Commons next week. The Government, which has already given some ground to its critics, may be forced to make more concessions to avoid a defeat. Its Commons majority was cut to just 14 after a revolt by 62 Labour MPs on Monday." says the Independent

For the Independent's round up today of the "Terror Bill: Taking liberties Today, the House of Lords debates the Prevention of Terrorism Bill. So how have our civil rights been eroded under Tony Blair? " see here . Extract: "... New arrangements between the US and UK mean US law-enforcement officers do not need to show evidence of guilt to gain an extradition order."
