Opposition Day — Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures — Statement and Review — 21 Jan 2014 at 18:48

John Baron MP, Basildon and Billericay voted to against requesting a statement from the Government on the threat caused by six individuals exiting Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures and against a cross party review of the measures.

The majority of MPs voted against requesting a statement from the Government on the threat caused by six individuals exiting Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (TPIMs) and against a cross party review of the measures.

The motion rejected in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • notes the ending of preventative measures allowed under Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (TPIM) for six terrorist suspects in January 2014, including individuals that the Home Secretary considers to pose a risk to the security of the United Kingdom through terrorism-related activity;
  • notes the decision made by the Home Secretary to end TPIM controls after two years regardless of whether she assesses individuals are likely to involve themselves in terrorism-related activity;
  • is concerned that the Home Secretary has provided to Parliament no assessment of the current threat these individuals may pose to the public through terrorist-related activity, and notes the recent finding of Mr Justice Wilkie that the Secretary of State does not accept that there is a general duty to tailor measures towards the end of a TPIM in order to facilitate assimilation;
  • further notes the disappearance of two terrorist suspects subject to TPIMs, Ibrahim Magag and Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed;
  • calls on the Government to make a statement to Parliament on the threat of terrorist-related activity posed by the six suspects exiting TPIMs, and to share the full assessment from the Security Service with the Intelligence and Security Committee; and
  • further calls on the Government to establish a cross-party review of TPIMs in the light of these assessments to decide whether changes are needed to protect the security and liberty of the United Kingdom.
