“You will see them very soon, we have put together quite a strong package,” Wallace told the BBC. “In the near future, in the next few weeks or months is when you’ll see it.”

Home Secretary Amber Rudd said last year that counter-terrorism laws need to be updated to keep pace with modern online behaviour and to address the issue of online radicalisation.
