proscribed organisation;

 

(c)    

remove or block such content with six hours of its being identified by

 

internal procedures; and

 

(d)    

remove or block such content within 24 hours of receiving an external

“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.

(3)    

In this section “profits” means any income derived from providing services for

This new clause would mean that organisations such as online donation platforms would not be

 

able to make a profit from supporting charitable fundraising for those affected by acts of terrorism.
