It offers comprehensive guidance on the effects, extent, and scope of the legislation, along with copies of the key legislation, including the Terrorism Act 2000, Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, Terrorism Act 2006, Terrorism (Northern Ireland) Act 2006, the Justice and Security (Northern Ireland) Act 2007, and the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008.
