Home Department G6 and United States Counter-Terrorism Symposium
Jacqui Smith (Home Secretary; Redditch, Labour)
The informal G6 group of Interior Ministers from France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland and the United Kingdom met in Bonn, Germany on 26 and 27 September 2008, along with the United States State Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
This was the third G6 plus US counter-terrorism symposium meeting. I attended on behalf of the United Kingdom.
