The Rt Hon Theresa May MP

The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Theresa May): Section 19(1) of the Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Act 2011 (the 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 her TPIM powers under the Act during that period.

The level of information provided will always be subject to slight variations based on operational advice.

TPIM notices in force (as of 31 August 2013) 9
TPIM notices in respect of British citizens (as of 31 August 2013) 8
TPIM notices extended (during the reporting period) 0
TPIM notices revoked (during the reporting period) 0
TPIM notices revived (during the reporting period) 1
Variations made to measures specified in TPIM notices (during the reporting period) 6
Applications to vary measures specified in TPIM notices refused (during the reporting period) 1

During the reporting period one TPIM notice that had been revoked in a previous quarter was revived upon the subject’s release from prison.

Two individuals were charged in relation to an offence under section 23 of the Act (contravening a measure specified in a TPIM notice without reasonable excuse) during the period.

Section 16 of the Act provides rights of appeal in relation to decisions taken by the Secretary of State under the Act. No appeals were lodged under section 16 during the reporting period. One judgment was handed down by the High Court in relation to an appeal under section 16 of the Act, lodged in a previous quarter. In Secretary of State for the Home Department v BF [2013] EWHC 843 (Admin), handed down on 30 July 2013, the High Court upheld the Secretary of State’s decision to extend BF’s TPIM notice and all the measures. This judgment is available at www.bailii.org

The TPIM Review Group (TRG) keeps every TPIM notice under regular and formal review. The TRG has met twice during this reporting period.
