Home Office 'pleased' at David Miranda court ruling

The Home Office said it was "pleased" that a High Court ruling allows police to examine material seized from David Miranda at Heathrow:

We are pleased the court has agreed that the police can examine the material as part of their criminal investigation insofar as it falls within the purposes of the original Schedule 7 examination and in order to protect national security.

It would be inappropriate for us to comment further on ongoing legal proceedings.
