9A,”.

 

(3)    

After paragraph 6A(2) insert—

 

  “(2A)  

A person questioned under paragraph 2 or 3 may not be detained under

 

paragraph 6 unless the examining officer has reasonable grounds to

 

suspect that he is a person falling within section 40(1)(b).”

 

(4)    

In paragraph 8(1) before “An examining officer” insert “Subject to paragraph 9A

 

below,”.

9A  (1)  

For the purposes of this Schedule—

 

(a)    

the information or documents which a person can be required

 

to give the examining officer under paragraph 5,

 

(b)    

the things which may be searched under paragraph 8, and

 

(c)    

the property which may be examined under paragraph 9 do

 

not include data stored on personal electronic devices unless

 

the person is detained under paragraph 6.

 

      (2)  

“Personal electronic device” includes a mobile phone, a personal

 

computer and any other portable electronic device on which personal

 

information is stored.”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This new clause would implement the recommendations of Parliament’s Joint Committee on

 

Human Rights and would require an officer to have reasonable grounds for suspecting an

 

individual is or has been concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of

 

terrorism before she could detain an individual for up to 6 hours under Schedule 7.
