UK's Brown: Anti-terror must be top priority
11/11/2006
Treasury chief Gordon Brown rejected opposition party calls to establish a Cabinet counter-terrorism post, but said in an interview published Saturday that keeping Britain secure should be a top priority for the country's leader. Brown is widely expected to become Britain's next prime minister when Tony Blair resigns within the coming year. He also said in an interview published in early editions of The Sunday Times newspaper that he agreed with the London police chief's assertion that authorities need stronger anti-terror powers, including an extension of the current 28-day limit for holding terrorism suspects without charge.
