On 16 December, the Home Office reported that the Government had published a consultation on proposals to strengthen the controls in place for purchasing explosives precursors and poisons under the Poisons Act 1972. It says that following the tragic Manchester Arena attack in 2017, the Government committed to enhance its capabilities to detect terrorist activity involving chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive material and their precursors, as well as control and safeguard these substances.
