The House of Commons Home Affairs Committee (HAC) published the report of its inquiry into the Home Office’s Response to Terrorist Attacks on 2 February 2010.
The inquiry considered aspects of the Government’s counter-terrorism work, focussing in particular on the:
- immediate response of the Home Office to a terrorist attack,
including the effectiveness of the Civil Contingencies Committee
(COBR) co-ordinating an immediate Government response
- potential use of intercept as evidence and the value of control
- misuse and misapplication of anti-terrorism powers
- Anti-terrorism measures at the European level
This Command Paper sets out the Government response to the conclusions
and recommendations in the Committee’s report.
