The Home Affairs Committee has published its final report on the Government draft Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill. The Bill aims to impose safety measures on venues to prevent and mitigate terror attacks. The Committee argues that the Bill is unclear, unfair, ineffective and costly for small businesses and voluntary organisations while leaving out other events and venues that are more vulnerable to terrorism. As such, the Committee calls for a risk-based approach, better training and funding, more research and clarity on the role of the regulator.
