The House of Commons has passed a law that would allow the police to detain terrorist suspects without charge for 28 days, after rejecting the 90-day period proposed by the Government. The draft Terrorism Bill, which must also be passed by the House of Lords, creates new criminal offences such as the glorification of terrorism and other direct or indirect encouragement of terrorism, dissemination of terrorist publications and preparation of terrorist acts.
