New Clause 33 — Review of Minimum Term on Reference by Attorney General

Criminal Justice Bill — [3rd Alloted Day] – in the House of Commons at 3:54 pm on 20th May 2003.

Alert me about debates like this

'In section 36 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988 (c.33) (reviews of sentencing) after subsection (3) there is inserted—

"(3A) Where a reference under this section relates to an order under subsection (2) of section (Determination of minimum term in relation to mandatory life sentence) of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 (determination of minimum term in relation to mandatory life sentence), the Court of Appeal shall not, in deciding what order under that section is appropriate for the case, make any allowance for the fact that the person to whom it relates is being sentenced for a second time.".'.—[Paul Goggins.]

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
