Security and Liberty Speech

Asked for more details on tomorrow’s speech, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) replied that it would be on the general themes of security and liberty. It would look at the new threats that we faced both in relation to terrorism and crime in the 21st Century, and how we needed to respond to those whilst respecting our fundamental freedoms.

Asked if there would be reference to David Davis, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister would be looking at how we would take forward the argument on issues such as pre-charge detention, and issues such as the modern methods we needed to deploy in order to respond to the challenges we faced in the 21st Century.
