Parliamentary briefing: Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill – House of Lords Committee Stage

Briefing front cover

This briefing covers a number of amendments to Part 5 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill which have been tabled for debate at Committee Stage in the House of Lords. 

In particular, Universities UK supports amendments which seek to increase scrutiny and oversight of ministerial powers introduced by the Bill (such as Amendments 112C, 115B and 112E), and which would provide an increased recognition of the particular duties of universities in securing freedom of speech and academic freedom within the law (such as Amendments 105 and 112B).
