Parties agree anti-terror action

PUBLISHED July 27, 2005

The cross-party consensus on new anti-terror plans sends a signal to terrorists of "our unity to defeat them", Tony Blair has said.

Mr Blair was speaking after talks with opposition leaders about introducing new laws, including bans on preparing, inciting or training for terrorism.
Tory leader Michael Howard said his call for phone-tap evidence to be used in courts was also being considered.
Lib Dem Charles Kennedy praised the government's "measured approach".
