Sadiq Khan MP, Labour's Shadow Justice Secretary, commenting on tonight’s defeat for Labour’s amendments to the Government’s Justice and Security Bill, said:

“It’s disappointing that Labour’s attempts to re-introduce checks and balances into the Government’s plans for closed material proceedings have been defeated by the Tories and Lib Dems. This had the support of the Government's own Independent Reviewer of Terrorism and the Joint Committee of Human Rights. We will be looking to our colleagues in the House of Lords to once again bring some balance to the Government’s plans over the coming weeks”
