These attacks have shocked us all. This is a worldwide threat, and we need to work closely with countries across Europe to share intelligence and to constantly monitor emerging threats. This is a 24/7 duty. We need the full facts so we can establish precisely why these people of violence have decided to destabilise one of the world’s great cities. The implications for us are serious, the Home Affairs Committee will be continuing with its Counter Terrorism inquiry to try and find the answers to these agonisingly difficult challenges.”
