Detention Without Charge/Criminal Justice Bill

Asked for an update re the situation on detention without charge and whether or not we were waiting for an amendment on the Criminal Justice Bill, the PMS said essentially, yes. The Prime Minister made a statement regarding this in July where he set out a number of options including doubling the period up to 56 days. There was an ongoing consultation ahead of any legislation that may emerge in the next session.

Asked if there would be a separate bill, the PMS said that in the list of Draft Bills, which were published in the Draft Queen’s Speech, there was a separate Counter Terrorism Bill.
