I am sure the right reverend Prelate will appreciate that I cannot talk in detail about national security matters, but I assure the right reverend Prelate and all noble Lords that there is a very robust approach across government, with all the key departments concerned, to ensure any threats to our nation and our citizens are fully identified and mitigated.

I assure the right reverend Prelate that agencies as well as government departments work together on ensuring that we keep our citizens safe.
