Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill
The Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill has been announced in the Kings Speech on the 7th November 2023
Also known as Martyn’s Law, the bill requires venues to take steps to be better prepared to respond if there is a terrorist attack.
At a time when threats to national security are changing rapidly due to new technology, my Ministers will give the security and intelligence services the powers they need and will strengthen independent judicial oversight. Legislation will be introduced to protect public premises from terrorism in light of the Manchester Arena attack.
