Downing St: Qatada ruling based on 'wrong legal test '

The Home will take "all the necessary steps" to ensure that Abu Qatada does not present a risk to the national security, the Prime Minister's official spokesman said.

The spokesman added that the Government believes yesterday's tribunal ruling was based on the application of the wrong legal test.

He said that the issue will be raised in future discussions with the Jordanian authorities.

We had received a number of assurances from the Jordanian government - they had even changed their constitution.

As the Home Secretary said, we will be appealing the judgement. We believe that we have got the right assurances from the Jordanian government.
