HC Deb 19 November 2001 vol 375 col 69 (MP for Dudley North): “I am sure it would help the House if the Minister, or the Home Secretary, could reiterate that it is Government policy that the Bill's provisions will be a last resort—in other words, that if foreign international terrorists can be prosecuted here … they will be…. I should also say that, at first blush, I am attracted to Professor Gearty’s proposal … for an annual report on detentions, by an independent commissioner”. “Liberty and Security”, Cambridge Centre for Public Law and Law Without Borders event, Cambridge University, May 2013, at http://sms.cam.ac.uk/media/1218384
