The Home Office has spoken about plans for it's new terror laws. The new plans are described as the most detailed in the world.
Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary is said to want the new paper, which is due to be released on Tuesday to be much more detailed than ever before. The paper will also cover the thoughts of intelligence agencies that the biggest danger to the security of the UK still comes from groups of people who are related to or inspired by al-Qaeda.
The new paper is a newer version of the Contest strategy which was first announced by the Home Office back in 2003.
The Home Office say that the newly updated paper would be considering how the threat from terrorists has changed.
The paper will also look at what needs to be learned following the hotel attacks in India. It isn't considered likely that any terror attacks could happen at UK hotels.
The chance of a terror attack on Britain has been set at severe since 2003. This means a future attack is thought possible but the UK is not considered to be in immediate danger.
3000 police officers currently work in counter-terrorism ad from 2011 Britain will spend £3.5 billion annually to try and counter the terrorist threat.
