English term or phrase:soundly defeated
At that time of national panic and mourning, the proposal to detain terrorist suspects for up to 90 days was **soundly defeated** on the floor of parliament.
I'm looking for a professional rendition for these collocated words.
"That time" at the first line refers to "London subway bombings"
Thanks in advance :-)
