Government prepares to unveil changes to anti-terror laws

PUBLISHED January 17, 2005

The government is preparing to announce next week the changes it plans to make to its anti-terror laws in the wake of a law lords ruling that they are unlawful, the Guardian has learned.

The move comes as another of the barristers appointed by the attorney general as "special advocates" to represent detainees' interests quits in protest at the government's failure to act so far.
