Falconer: No terror law dispute

PUBLISHED July 29, 2005

Lord Falconer has dismissed suggestions there is a split between the judiciary and the government when it comes to applying anti-terrorism laws.

On Wednesday Tony Blair said he expected judges to uphold any new laws.
But ex-master of the rolls Lord Donaldson said: "It is the judges whose job it is to ensure the government of the day does not exceed its powers."
