Anti-terror plans face new hurdle

The Government faces a renewed battle today over its controversial anti-terror plans as the country's most senior police officer warned of attempted attacks in the coming months.
MPs will again debate the Terrorism Bill amid continuing opposition from the Tories, Liberal Democrats and some Labour backbenchers.

The Bill survived a mauling from all sides of the Commons last week. Today opponents will again demand Home Secretary Charles Clarke drops plans to allow police to hold terror suspects for up to 90 days without charge.
