Terror Detention

Asked if Lord Carlile had been right in thinking that there would be decisions from the Home Office regarding terror detention in the next 48 hours, the PMS said no.

Asked how far away such decisions and announcements were, the PMS said people should wait and see, but as he had said this morning, there needed to be further consideration of the options and we were not yet in the position to put forward any new proposals.

Asked if there was surprise regarding Liberty’s suggestion that the Government had not fully understood their position, the PMS said that he was not sure if that was what Liberty had said. The Government wanted to work with Liberty and with all of the major interests, including the opposition parties, to find a consensual approach to this; we were not going about this in an antagonistic way; we wanted to do this on a consensual and cooperative basis by talking to and working with people to find a solution.

Put that both David Davis and Liberty were saying that the Government was misrepresenting where they were coming from, the PMS said it was not for him to comment on what David Davis was saying; there would be further discussions with the opposition parties in the coming weeks and we would have to see where that would get us to.
