House of Lords Joint Committee on Human Rights – Legislative Scrutiny: Terrorist Asset- Freezing

In the view of the Committee “there is scope to amend the Bill to provide for a standard of proof which is higher than that which is currently in the Bill, but which is still lower than the standard required to charge the person with a criminal offence. This would still be consistent with the power being used preventively, and we accordingly propose an amendment to the Bill.”
