HMG already has robust counter-terrorism measures in place, which are outlined in the UK’s Counter-Terrorism Strategy (CONTEST). We continuously review these policies in light of new developments. We are closely monitoring France and Austria’s responses – and have been in discussions with both governments following the attacks - and will look to learn from these examples where they are applicable to the UK context.
