Section 14(1) of the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 (the 2005 Act) requires the Secretary of State to report to Parliament as soon as reasonably practicable after the end of every relevant three-month period on the exercise of the control order powers during that period.

I regret to inform the House that there was an inaccuracy in the information given in the statement entitled control order powers (11 March 2010 to 10 June 2010) and laid before Parliament on 21 June 2010.

The statement reports that 10 of the 12 individuals subject to a control order as of 10 June 2010 were British citizens. The correct figure was that 9 of the 12 individuals subject to a control order were British citizens.
