Since 2001, the Department has produced numerous documents regarding the provisions of counter-terrorism legislation. There is no central database of the documents and to provide them would incur disproportionate costs. Information on the government's counter-terrorism legislation can be found on the Home Office website:

We continue to keep our counter terrorism legislation under review and the Counter-Terrorism Bill was introduced to Parliament on 24 January 2008.
