90 Days Detention

Asked if the Prime Minister was attracted to the notion put forward by Lord Carlile that detention should be open ended, the PMS said that what the Prime Minister was attracted to was listening to the concerns of the police. The president of ACPO Ken Jones had said today that there might be case for going beyond 28 days, but he had also emphasised that the police were making it clear that they had not and would not call for indefinite detention.

Asked where we were on the process of consulting other parties in building a consensus, the PMS replied that this was something that was being taken forward by Jacqui Smith, but people should check with the Home Office on the details of where we were. We certainly would be looking to bring that process to a conclusion in the next few weeks.
