New Counter terrorism laws will affect Brits travelling in and out of the country
26th November 2014

The Home Secretary Teresa May will announce new powers to tackle terrorism in the UK today.

Schools, universities and local councils will be required to take action to prevent radicalisation in their communities, as well as forcing internet service providers to keep some information on users. 

The terror threat level was raised from substantial to severe earlier this year. 

The bill will include some plans that will affect British citizens returning home to the UK or leaving the country.

Criticisms of the bill are already saying it is a threat to the public’s civil liberties.

One proposed plan is to have airlines pass on the details of passenger to monitor potential terror suspects.

Simon Calder, the Independent's Travel Editor joined Headline London to discuss how these plans will affect the travel industry.
