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 this Chapter—

"court" includes a courtmartial;

"guidelines" has the same meaning as in section 156(1);

"life sentence" means—

a sentence of imprisonment for life, a sentence of detention during Her Majesty's pleasure, or

a sentence of custody for life passed before the commencement of section 61(1) of the Criminal Justice and Court Services Act 2000 (c. 43) (which abolishes that sentence).'.—[Paul Goggins.]

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