Tony Blair's government will propose new anti-terror legislation before Christmas, the prime minister said Thursday. Blair, in an interview on his 10 Downing St. office's Web site, said the bill would seek to extend the current 28-day maximum period for which police are now able to detain terrorism suspects without charge. He sought a 90-day limit last year but was defeated in Parliament and settled for 28 days, an increase from the then-maximum of 14 days. He said Thursday that he wasn't sure whether the government would again push for a 90-day limit, promising to consult with police before making a decision.
