Since 24 August 2005 no individuals have been deported from the UK specifically on the ground of involvement in fomenting or provoking others to commit acts of terrorism. However, such acts come within the scope of the power to deport a person because their presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good and are listed under the "unacceptable behaviour" (UB) provisions announced on 24 August 2005. To date there has been one deportation on UB grounds.
