The Committee's first report in its ongoing inquiry into counter-terrorism policy and human rights issues (HLP 75-1/HCP 561-1, session 2005-06; ISBN 0104007672) focused on the London terrorist attacks in July 2005 and the Government's counter-terrorism measures taken in response. This publication, the Committee's second report in its inquiry, focuses on the human rights implications of the control orders regime established under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, in relation to issues of deprivation of liberty, right to a fair trial, inhuman and degrading treatment, impact on human rights of family members, and discrimination. The control orders regime will be extended for a further year from March 2006 if a draft Order is approved by both Houses of Parliament. The Committee finds that the case for consolidating counter-terrorism legislation is potentially strong. However it is noted with regret that the Government has decided to seek the renewal of the control orders regime through a draft Order rather than a Bill, therefore significantly reducing the scope for parliamentary scrutiny and debate.
