U.K. TERROR BILL.
The U.K. Terror Bill Passed.
Mr Blair says the new bill would allay 'genuine concerns'. The marathon debate over the anti-terror bill has finally ended after more than 30 hours with the Government's bill being passed.
The end to the stalemate came after the Tories accepted a compromise offered by Prime Minister Tony Blair. His promise to allow MPs to review the bill in a year's time succeeded, although the Conservatives claimed it as their victory.
The Bill prompted the third longest recorded sitting of the House of Lords.
