My right hon. Friend the Home Secretary 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.

These reports include the number of individuals subject to a control order. I refer my hon. Friend to the most recent such report, published on 21 June 2010, which indicates that as of 10 June 2010, the last date covered by the report, there were 12 control orders in force.

These reports give as much information as we can provide about controlled individuals, given the national security sensitivities of these cases, and the need to avoid publishing any information that could lead to the identification of an individual who is subject to an anonymity order.
