In accordance with section 36 of the Terrorism Act 2006, Max Hill QC, the Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, prepared a report on the operation in 2016 of the Terrorism Act 2000 and Part 1 of the Terrorism Act 2006, which was laid before the House on 25 January 2018. He also prepared a report on the use of terrorism legislation following the Westminster Bridge terrorist attack, which was laid before the House on 22 March 2018.
I am grateful to Mr Hill for his reports and have carefully considered the recommendations and observations included in them. I am today laying before the House the Government’s responses to both reports, copies of which will be available in the Vote Office. They will also be published on GOV.UK.
