Public Consultation on the draft Terrorist Asset-Freezing Bill

18 March 2010

The Treasury has launched a public consultation on the Terrorist Asset-Freezing Bill, which was published in draft on 5 February 2010. The consultation document sets out the Government’s approach to terrorist asset freezing and its proposals for more permanent terrorist asset freezing legislation. 

The Government is committed to maintaining an effective, proportionate and fair terrorist asset freezing regime that meets UN obligations, protects national security by disrupting flows of terrorist finance, and safeguards human rights.  This public consultation will play an important role in ensuring the new legislation is subject to proper scrutiny and that Parliament’s consideration of the proposals in due course is informed by external views and evidence.
