Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill — Third Reading — 5 Sep 2011 at 21:56

The majority of MPs voted to abolish the system of control orders and replace them with Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures(TPIMs).

TPIMs are a civil preventative measure intended to protect the public from the risk posed by suspected terrorists who can be neither prosecuted nor, in the case of foreign nationals, deported, by imposing restrictions intended to prevent or disrupt their engagement in terrorism-related activity.[1]

The threshold for the imposition of a TPIM is "reasonable belief that the individual is or has been involved in terrorism-related activity" which is considered a higher threshold than that required previously for a control order which was "reasonable suspicion" of involvement in such activity.

TPIMs are subject to a two-year time limit and oversight by the courts.

The majority of MPs voted in favour of a third reading of the Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill[2], approving the Bill as it stood and allowing it to continue on its path to becoming law.
