Database to bar hate preachers from Britain

PUBLISHED July 20, 2005

The Government is to create a global database of hate preachers and other individuals accused of fomenting or promoting terrorism so that they can be easily kept out of Britain.

The move was announced today by Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary, as part of a raft of anti-terror measures including three new criminal offences that will be rushed through Parliament with cross-party support after the July 7 suicide bombings in London
