Abstract

The shocking events in Paris have jolted Western governments into action, with the UK’s Conservative government seeking to increase and enhance security measures to prevent a similar occurrence happening in Britain. Part of their approach has been to announce the forthcoming introduction of new laws to assist the security services surveillance powers – a move which Andrew Defty argues should not be taken lightly. He also suggests that legislation which does not receive considerable scrutiny is unlikely to improve and enhance national security.
