Serious failings revealed in Commons committee report must be put right

Responding to the Intelligence and Security Committee’s report on the 2017 terror attacks, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesperson Ed Davey said:

“We are all immensely grateful for the work our police and security services do in responding to terror attacks and stopping others from being carried out.

“This report reveals a number of serious failings that must be put right in order to prevent more tragedies in the future. The failure of successive Home Secretaries to address past concerns is completely unacceptable.

“Rather than introducing needless new authoritarian laws in its latest Counter-Terror Bill, the Government should focus on fixing these problems. That includes a thorough review of the Prevent programme.”
