The Secretary of State reports to Parliament on the exercise of her powers under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 on a quarterly basis and additionally on an ad hoc basis if required. As the figures for control orders vary within any given year, the hon. Member is advised to consult the reports which include the number of individuals subject to a control order and the number who are foreign nationals.

I accordingly refer my hon. Friend to these reports, dated 21 June 2010, 16 March 2010, 15 December 2009, 16 September 2009, 15 June 2009, 12 March 2009, 15 December 2008, 15 September 2008, 12 June 2008, 13 March 2008, 12 December 2007, 17 September 2007, 21 June 2007, 24 May 2007, 22 March 2007, 16 January 2007, 11 December 2006, 11 September 2006, 12 June 2006, 13 March 2006.

Further reports dated 12 December 2005, 10 October 2005 and 16 June 2005 include the number of individuals subject to a control order but do not include the number of foreign nationals. The number of foreign nationals in these reports is seven, two and 11 respectively.
