Anti-Terrorism Control Orders

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 12 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment he has made of the impact of the current level of police resources on the ability of law enforcement agencies adequately to monitor individuals subject to control orders; and if he will make a statement. (141510)

The Home Office undertakes a regular assessment of resources allocated to the police. Funding allocated to the police has increased significantly. Between 2005-06 and 2007-08 we have increased overall police funding by £978 million and within this, counter-terrorism specific funding by over £144 million. Responsibility for monitoring and enforcement of control orders lies with the police and is managed from within their overall budget.
