Former members have berated the Green Party for its support of Labour's Terrorism Suppression Bill, which gives authorities greater powers to jail returning foreign fighters. The Greens struck a last minute deal with Labour which dealt with their concerns over the validity of foreign convictions and deportations. But some former MPs say the bill still risks harming human rights and there are other ways to fight terrorism.
