It is an important message for us to give that we are very clear that we will take action against those who are involved in terrorism. Obviously each Home Secretary deals with the question of deprivation on a number of occasions; I dealt with deprivation cases myself, and there is a very clear set of criteria on which the Home Secretary considers that matter. But the overall point my hon.
