Anti-terror bill battle moves to Lords

The bitter battle over the Government's controversial new anti-terrorism powers will resume today as the House of Lords begins its detailed scrutiny of the legislation.
Both the Tories and Liberal Democrats have warned that they intend to push through changes to the Prevention of Terrorism Bill in the upper chamber, where the Government has no majority.

The Bill is intended to introduce control orders for terrorist suspects enabling the authorities to impose curfews, tagging, bans on telephone and internet use, and, in the most serious cases, house arrest.
