Martyn’s Law will enhance public safety by ensuring there is better preparedness for, and protection from, terrorist attacks.
The Terrorism (Protection of premises) draft Bill, also known as Martyn’s Law, has recently completed pre-legislative scrutiny via the Home Affairs Select Committee and is awaiting introduction to Parliament – the draft provisions in the Bill are not yet law and are subject to change.
Martyn’s Law has been designed to make compliance simple. ProtectUK is a free resource that will include a wealth of information to help organisations and businesses understand what they need to do to make their venue safer for customers. Neither the Home Office nor NaCTSO endorse any third-party suppliers claiming to help support compliance with the legislation.
