Financial Times: Policy limiting liquids on aircraft challenged (September 6 2007)
European legislators called for a review of the continent's anti-terrorism policies yesterday, including the scrapping of limits on taking liquids on board aircraft.

While Franco Frattini, the justice commissioner, hailed arrests in Germany and Denmark as a "fantastic result" that proved the value of the European Union's actions since the September 11 2001 attacks, the European parliament rounded on him for trampling on civil liberties and presiding over mismatched legal measures.

MEPs also voted to force the European Commission to publish the secret regulation limiting air passengers to five 100ml bottles of fluid, which has increased queues at airports, saying that unless it had a valid reason it should be scrapped.
