A bid to hold a major terrorism trial in complete secrecy must be debated in the Commons, an MP and campaigner on civil liberties has said.
Dominic Raab, a former Foreign Office lawyer, told MPs that even after today's Court of Appeal ruling to lift some of the restrictions, journalists would still be "hand-picked" to cover the trial.
"Given what is at stake in terms of principles of open justice and democracy, can we have a statement or debate in the near future?" he asked.
Commons leader Andrew Lansley replied, "The issues were considered, though it is not a matter for the Government to decide these things, they were decided by the court ... we can look to the courts to ensure the interests of justice will be maintained."
