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 29 February 2012) 9
TPIM notices in respect of British citizens (as of 29 February 2012) 9
TPIM notices imposed (all of the individuals who were subject to a control order at the time the TPIM Act received Royal Assent are now subject to a TPIM notice) 9
Variations made to measures specified in TPIM notices 4
Applications to vary measures specified in TPIM notices refused 7

During the reporting period: no TPIM notices were extended; no TPIM notices were revoked; and no TPIM notices were revived.

A TPIM review group (TRG) has been set up in order to keep every TPIM notice under regular and formal review. The TPIM review group did not meet during this reporting period.

No 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 2011 Act provides rights of appeal against decisions by the Secretary of State in relation to decisions taken under the Act. No appeals were lodged under section 16 during the reporting period and no judgments have been handed down by the High Court in relation to TPIM cases.
