The Secretary of State for the Home Department set out recent changes to funding for Counter-Terrorism (CT) in her written statement on 21 January 2020.

This set out a package of measures including a major overhaul of prisons and probation, tougher monitoring conditions for terrorist offenders, and doubling the number of Counter-Terrorism probation officers. A £90m year-on-year increase in funding for Counter-Terrorism Policing was also announced (taking total funding to £906m in 2020-21), as well as an immediate £0.5m to further support the victims of terrorism.
