Should control orders be scrapped?
Lord Carlile, who is stepping down as the government's independent reviewer of anti-terrorism legislation, claims there is no alternative to the measures which can include curfews, electronic tags, and travel and mobile phone curbs.
A review of counter-terrorism legislation was due to be published before Christmas, but has been delayed due to ongoing negotiations between ministers. The issue has divided the coalition as the Lib Dems had promised during the general election campaign to abolish control orders.
Do you agree with Lord Carlile? Do control orders maintain national security? Is there a better alternative?
