Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order.)

Under section 73 of the Police (Northern Ireland) Act 2000 (“the Police Act”) lay visitors may only visit a place of detention designated by the Secretary of State under paragraph 1 of Schedule 8 to the Terrorism Act 2000 if it has been designated by Order as a place they may visit.

This Order designates as a place that may be visited by lay visitors under section 73 of the Police Act, that part of Antrim Police Station that has been designated by the Secretary of State under paragraph 1 of Schedule 8 to the Terrorism Act 2000. The effect of section 73(9) of the Police Act is that the remainder of Antrim Police Station can in any event be visited by lay visitors. It also revokes the Police (Northern Ireland) Act 2000 (Designated Places of Detention) Order 2002 (S.R. 2002/179), which designated part of Lisburn Police Station as a place that could be visited by lay visitors under section 73 of the Police Act.
