The argument over why control orders should be scrapped

Sir Menzies Campbell and Patrick Mercer MP spoke to Newsnight about the arguments over scrapping control orders and what alternatives might be used.

The orders, part of counter-terrorism legislation introduced in 2005, restrict suspects' freedoms and are being reviewed by the government.

But there are reports that the review has recommended control orders be kept.
