This written ministerial statement was laid in the House of Commons on 18 July by Theresa May, and in the House of Lords by Baroness Browning.
On 16 March, I made a remedial order under the powers conferred on me by section 10(2) and paragraph 1(1) of Schedule 2 to the Human Rights Act 1998. That order replaced stop and search powers previously available to the police under sections 44 to 47 of the Terrorism Act 2000, with a significantly circumscribed set of powers, and provisions for an associated Code of Practice.
As required by paragraph 4(2) of Schedule 2 to the Human Rights Act, I have placed a statement in the House Library to summarise the representations made during the 60 days since that order was made.
