Improving the Justice and Security Bill

Last night a large number of Liberal Democrat peers helped to inflict a string of defeats on the Government’s Justice and Security Bill – one perhaps better known in the media as the “secret courts” legislation.

Over on Lib Dem Voice today, the party’s convenor in the Lords Lord Alderdice explains why peers voted the way they did, how it improved the Bill and why we stopped short of throwing out part 2 of the Bill entirely. You can find it here.
