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

The 2005 Act came into force on 11 March 2005. During the 3rd period (11 September to 10 December) I made four orders on 23 November 2005 and one order on 8 December 2005, all five were made with the permission of the court under section 3(1)(a) of the 2005 Act.

There are eight control orders currently in force.

During the period I have refused two requests to modify control order obligations. A right of appeal exists in section 10 of the 2005 Act against a decision by the Secretary of State not to modify an obligation contained in a control order. This has not been exercised in respect of these refusals.

Dear Charles Clarks (Secretary of State Home Office)
I am fully agree with you and as the member of this multi cultural society my personal feelings are you have to take every single strong step to provide us security from terrorists as well as to rest of other countries of the world. In United Kingdom we cant afford these criminal minded sick persons, who want to divide us in Briton. We are still one nation and united.One for all and all for one.
