A prominent lawmaker, Baroness Jenny Jones, has described the move as provocative, saying it could potentially endanger the public. The plan, drawn up by police chiefs and discussed by top government officials, was leaked to media on Friday. Jones, who sits on London’s Police and Crime Committee, called the revelation as shocking and demanded a parliamentary debate on the issue. The plan, code-named Operation Temperer, would see more than 5-thousand armed personnel in inner cities in case of terror attacks. Last month, more than one thousand police officers and soldiers staged a mass exercise to test their ability to respond to a gun attack on London.
