Priti Patel – 2022 Comments on the National Security Bill

The comments made by Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, on 11 May 2022.

The British public should be in no doubt of my determination to keep them and our country safe from those who would seek to do us harm.

The threat of hostile activity from states targeting our democracy, economy and the values we hold dear is real and ever-evolving – which is why the modernising measures included in the National Security Bill are so essential.

These tougher laws and more powerful tools for our world class police and intelligence agencies, will be critical to help those on the front line deal with the threats we are constantly facing.
