Security Briefing

Asked if the briefing on security to Cabinet today had been a long planned meeting, or was it something that had recently come up, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) replied that it was not an overnight operation, but rather, a chance to update the Cabinet in the same way that representatives updated the Cabinet Committee about ten days ago. As then, it was a sobering, realistic assessment of the threat we faced. It also gave Cabinet a chance to express its full support for the police and the intelligence agencies in the very good work they were doing.

Asked if there had been any change in the advice given about the assessment position, the PMOS replied there was not. What was important was that the threat remained very real, and therefore the Cabinet as a whole needed to understand the nature of the threat, the operations that were being undertaken to counter the threat, and what needed to be done in the future.
