More anti-terror law climbdowns not ruled out

The Government refused today to rule out further concessions to get controversial anti-terror laws on to the statute book.
Home Office minister Hazel Blears repeatedly declined to rule out a backdown over a 'sunset clause' which would see the Bill expire at the end of November.

Prime Minister Tony Blair said yesterday that such a move would send out the wrong signals. He said Tory peers would be 'irresponsible and wrong' to persist in their attempts to water down a Bill which both the police and the security services believe is necessary.
