Making control orders compatible
House of Lords
“Statutory provisions governing the court’s powers in reviewing nonderogating control orders made by the Secretary of State for the Home Department under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 were to be read down in accordance with section 3 of the Human Rights Act 1998 where their effect would otherwise deny the controlled person a fair hearing compatible with article 6.1 of the European Convention on Human Rights.”
