    All party group on extraordinary rendition has more than 50 members

    This snippet from the House of Commons Hansard debate transcript, from the 15th February:

    Even a casual glance at the Foreign Secretary's statement will show that it was not "in response to"; it was simply an unconditional, unquestioned adoption of the US position without qualification or reservation of any kind. It is this which causes Members on all sides of the House, and very many people outside Parliament, real anxiety My hon. Friend the Member for Chichester (Mr. Tyrie) has established the all-party parliamentary group on extraordinary rendition. It is an indication of the concern in the House about the issue that the group already has more than 50 Members of Parliament, and its vice-chairmen include the acting leader of the Liberal party, the right hon. and learned Member for North-East Fife (Sir Menzies Campbell), and the hon. Member for Sunderland, South (Mr. Mullin), who until recently was, of course, a Minster in the Foreign Office in this Government. More information about the group's work can be found at their website www.extraordinaryrendition.org.
