Volume 716: debated on Tuesday 5 January 2010


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether United Kingdom intelligence and counter-terrorism officials were consulted on the security and public order implications of the publication of the book The Cartoons that Shook the World by Jytte Klausen. [HL717]

Security and intelligence officials routinely monitor the security implications of a wide range of matters. The police have the powers needed to deal with public order issues.

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord West of Spithead on 2 December (WA 41), what are the public service agreement indicator sets for the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism [HL791]

Further to the Written Answer of 2 December, we can confirm that the public service agreement indicator set for OSCT is classified. Both the PSA indicator set and the data of performance against the PSA contain information about the UK counterterrorism effort that could be potentially useful to those who threaten the UK and its interests. Non-classified material about PSA 26 can be found in the UK's updated counterterrorism strategy, CONTEST.
