Gordon Brown UK PM, today vowed to detain terror suspects for up to 42 days without charge.

The Prime Minister has ordered new talks to be held with Labour backbenchers, which includes the Home Secretary having to declare that there is an “exceptional need" to hold people for up to 42 days without charge.

Such a scenario could be if Britain faced multiple terror plots or had just been hit by a mass-casualty attack.

The detention without charge, which is currently limited to 28 days, would be overseen by a judge.

"The Prime Minister is absolutely clear that introducing legislation on a precautionary basis in order to detain people beyond 28 days should that be necessary is the right thing to do to protect the country.

“We have also made clear that there would need to be sufficient parliamentary and judicial safeguards in place."

Just days ago the parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights branded the proposals “fundamentally flawed".

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Sir Ken Macdonald, and former attorney general Lord Goldsmith have also voiced their opposition. ..sourced from daily mail
