Terrorist Asset-Freezing Bill: report stage

26 October 2010

The Terrorist Asset-Freezing Bill began its report stage in the House of Lords – further line-by-line examination – on Monday 25 October

Lord Sassoon, Commercial Secretary to the Treasury, opened the debate.

The Bill seeks to make a provision for imposing financial restrictions on, and in relation to, certain persons suspected of involvement in terrorist activities; to amend Schedule 7 to the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008; and for connected purposes.

Third reading - final tidying up of the Bill - has yet to be scheduled.

Further information

Report stage in the Chamber gives all Members of the Lords further opportunity to consider all amendments (proposals for change) to a Bill.

Report stage usually starts 14 days after committee stage. It can be spread over several days (but usually fewer days than at committee stage).
