Home Secretary statement on ISC report on 2017 attacks

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Breaking news, Reactive statements

Today (Thursday 22 November), the Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) have published a report into the 2017 attacks.

In response, Home Secretary Sajid Javid said:

My thoughts remain with the victims and families of last year's attack - which only serve to strengthen our resolve against those who seek to threaten our freedoms and do us harm.

Following the attacks, the Government, police and MI5 undertook a series of rigorous reviews to ensure we are all doing everything we can to tackle the evolving threat of terrorism.

As a result, we have updated our counter-terrorism strategy, introduced new legislation to allow threats to be disrupted earlier and have increased information sharing with local authorities. We are also ensuring technology companies play their part by stopping terrorists from exploiting their platforms.

I thank the ISC for their report which we will review and formally respond in due course.
