Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism
Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) (No. 2) Bill
Tony McNulty (Minister of State, Home Office; Harrow East, Labour)
I absolutely accept my hon. Friend's point and not least her argument that we need to look far beyond this order—whether we have 14 days or 28 days—and consider matters in the widest context, including legislation, intelligence and all other areas, in terms of how we go forwards. I also accept her point that our starting premise must be what we all accept and agree is normality in terms of the rule of law and the statutes that govern this country. We depart from that certainly not in haste, or at leisure, but only in extremis and in very difficult and daunting circumstances.
