Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill 2014

02 Dec 2014

Parts of Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill 2014, introduced to the House of Commons on 26 November, will directly affect the governance and operation of higher education institutions. Whilst much of the Parliamentary scrutiny of the Bill is likely to focus on restrictions on travel, TPIMs and internet privacy, measures in Part 5 Chapter 1 fundamentally change the relationship between Government and universities and it is vital this section of the Bill is given sufficient attention.

This briefing was published in advance of the Second Reading of the Bill in the House of Commons.
