Prime Minister Blair responded to questions and comments from members of his party and the opposition. Most of the questions focused on the proposed Anti-Terror Bill and the provision of the measure that would allow police to hold terror suspects for 90 days without charge.

Shortly after this Question Time, members of the House of Commons defeated that key provision of the Anti-Terror Bill. The defeat of the provision for holding terror suspects for 90 days without charge in the government’s bill was considered a major blow to Prime Minister Blair. 49 members of his Labour Party voted against it. close
