Concerns raised about UK terror law

Concerns about plans to exclude people from the UK if they go abroad to fight with extremist groups have been raised by the UK's reviewer of terror laws.



Queen’s Council David Anderson says his central concern about the proposals first unveiled by David Cameron in early September is the absence of mention of the courts.



Temporary Exclusion Orders are one of the measures in the counter terrorism bill which also includes tougher powers to stop people going abroad to fight.



It will include plans to stop some British citizens returning to the UK, and others from leaving the country.



Campaigners have condemned it, saying it threatens civil liberties.
