Anti Terror Laws

Asked if there were any reservations expressed over the introduction of the anti terror laws at Cabinet today, the PMS said that as she had explained earlier, we did not go into the details of Cabinet discussions. There had been an update from the Home Secretary on what he had said in the House of Commons yesterday. As he had explained yesterday, he would be bringing forward further measures.

Put that Charles Clarke had said on the radio this morning that he could "perfectly understand" people’s concerns about the issues raised, and that they were right to be concerned, the PMS explained, as she had also said this morning, that there had to be a balance between protecting civil liberties, whilst at the same time protecting national security.
