    In response to the Government's proposals in its review of counter-terror and security powers, John Wadham, Group Director Legal, at the Equality and Human Rights Commission said:

    “Departure from the principles of our civil liberties and human rights, which have been in place for hundreds of years, should only happen in exceptional circumstances. We recognise the duty on government to protect public safety and the need for it to have specific measures in place to do this. We welcome how seriously the government has taken this review and the move towards a better balance between protecting the public and protecting their rights.”
