Terrorism: No Release Before End of Sentence.
Emergency legislation will be introduced to end the automatic early release from prison of terror offenders, the government said.
Justice Secretary Robert Buckland told MPs the change would apply to both current and future offenders.
Terror offenders only considered for release once they have served two-thirds of their sentence and with the approval of the Parole Board.
It follows two attacks by men convicted of terror offences in recent months.
On Sunday, Sudesh Amman, 20, was shot dead by police in Streatham, south London, after stabbing two people. And in November two people were killed near London Bridge by Usman Khan.
Amman released from prison towards the end of January. Khan was out on licence from prison when he launched an attack in central London.
Mr Buckland said the latest incident made the case “for immediate action”. New measures to end early release
