To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department on what date he, or officials in his Department, started to review the case of prisoner C", then being held in Woodhill Prison; what new information led him to decide to release prisoner C"; and on what dates reviews of the cases of other prisoners being detained under anti-terrorist legislation in Belmarsh Prison, began.

The individual cases of those certified under the Anti-terrorism Crime and Security Act 2001, Part 4 powers were kept under regular review and I was kept fully informed of any developments in the individual cases.

My last consideration of C's" case was on 31 January, when following a meeting with the Security Service, I decided that his certificate should be revoked.

In the case of C" I revoked the certificate because there was a change in circumstances that related to his specific case.
