Carile Report

Asked whether the Prime Minister had seen similar information to that described by Lord Carlile in his report, which said he had seen information on the real and present danger of shocking terrorism, acts involving suicide bombers and that further suicide bombers must be expected, the PMOS said that Lord Carlile had said at the time of the debate in the House, as had his own briefings following Cabinet discussions, that we believed there remained serious threats to this country. We had also said that we would let the public know if we were aware of any specific threats. Nobody was pretending the situation was anything other than that described by Lord Carlile, but at the same time we continued to take measures to protect the public. We remained indebted to the police and security services for their work in this area. The Prime Minister had never hidden his view that there were serious threats against this country and everyone had to be vigilant in trying to protect the public against those threats.
