(Reuters) - Canadian security firm GardaWorld said on Monday it has further extended its cash offer for larger rival G4S, which has repeatedly rejected the hostile bid valuing the British company at about 3 billion pounds ($4 billion).

The offer will remain open for acceptance until Dec. 16, GardaWorld said, after earlier extending the offer until Nov. 28. It received valid acceptances of a total of 2.8 million G4S shares, or 0.17%, as at Nov. 28.

G4S, one of the world's largest private security companies, had rejected GardaWorld's sweetened 190 pence per share proposal in September, calling it "highly opportunistic."

Commons planning new security measures as MPs report threats of violence

  Commons planning new security measures as MPs report threats of violence The House of Commons is getting ready to boost security measures for MPs outside of the parliamentary precinct in response to growing concerns about the risk of political violence, sources tell Radio-Canada. The move comes after a series of incidents raised red flags with federal elected officials — including an attempt at a sidewalk "citizen's arrest" of NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh in Ottawa in late September and the case of Corey Hurren, a  Manitoba man who faces 21 weapons charges and one charge of threatening the prime minister related to an incident in July at Rideau Hall.

"GardaWorld has received only 0.17% acceptances, reflecting the derisory level of the offer," G4S said in a statement, urging shareholders to take no action.

G4S also said this month that it had rejected what it termed a "highly conditional" offer from U.S. company Allied Universal at a price of 210 pence per share.

Shares in G4S were on track to gain 13% this quarter after surging 75% in the quarter ended September. They were down marginally in early trade.

"Throughout this process, we have not seen a single piece of evidence to suggest that our offer of 190p in cash is anything other than full and fair," GardaWorld Chief Executive Officer Stephan Crétier said.

Federal government rethinking use of controversial polygraph test .
The federal government is reviewing its use of so-called lie detector tests in security screenings as a new report called out the controversial practice. The National Security and Intelligence Review Agency (NSIRA), the watchdog body overseeing Canada's intelligence agencies, tabled a report on Friday which questioned the merits of polygraph tests. The test tracks physiological factors like blood pressure and changes in pulse rate and supposedly can tell whether a person is lying.
