Question

At a hustings during the GLA election campaign (27th of April at Norton Rose offices), you agreed that government should review the 2003 Terrorism Act so that British citizens could be tried before British courts. You also supported the case for the case of Babar Ahmad to be heard before a British judge and jury. Can you update me on what action you have taken since being re-elected to progress these commitments?

As you are aware, I wrote to the Home Secretary shortly following the election raising my continuing concerns about the Extradition Act 2003.
