‘The Protect Duty’, also known as Martyn’s Law, is draft legislation which has been championed by Figen Murray, the mother of Martyn Hett who was killed alongside 21 others in the Manchester Arena terrorist attack in 2017.

After attending a subsequent theatre show in 2018, Figen realised that there had been no increase in security following the tragic events of 2017, and with the UK’s current terror threat level being ‘substantial’ (level 3 of 5 or higher since 2019), more needed to be done – as a result, Figan Murray drew up Martyn’s Law.

We have produced this Briefing Note to provide further information about the draft legislation and to provide you with some next steps on how to prepare for Martyn’s Law.
