Counter-Terrorism Bill 2008

In January 2008 the British Government introduced its new Counter-Terrorism Bill in Parliament, setting out its plans to significantly increase the powers currently granted to the police to combat terror.

You can read the full text of the bill here in PDF format, as well as the explanatory notes provided by the Home Office.

You can also read an analysis of the proposed laws by Peace & Progress, also in PDF.
