Jack Straw statement-terrorism

Asked about Jack Straw’s comments during his statement yesterday regarding British nationals being caught up overseas in terrorist attacks and the financial support offered to them, and was he disagreeing with the Prime Minister about it not being an everyday occurrence, the PMOS said that unfortunately, terrorism was a fact of life in the modern world. In terms of incidents directly affecting British people abroad, the Foreign Secretary was correct, and fortunately, it was not an everyday occurrence. That did not mean, however, that when it did happen to those individuals, it did not have a devastating impact, as it did, and the Foreign Secretary had acknowledged that fact. As the Prime Minister pointed out yesterday, terrorism affected some 30 to 40 other countries as well, therefore nothing that the Foreign Secretary had said cut across what the Prime Minister had said.
