Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures

Volume 592: debated on Thursday 12 February 2015

Clause 17 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill requires the Secretary of State to publish factors that she considers are appropriate to take into account when deciding whether to impose restrictions under paragraph 2 of schedule 1 of the TPIM Act (travel restrictions).

The following factors are appropriate to take into account when deciding whether to impose restrictions under paragraph 2 of schedule 1 of the TPIM Act (travel restrictions):

the need to prevent or restrict a TPIM subject’s involvement in terrorism-related activity;

the personal circumstances of the individual;

proximity to travel links including public transport, airports, ports and international rail terminals;

the availability of services and amenities, including access to employment, education, places of worship and medical facilities;

proximity to prohibited associates;

proximity to positive personal influences;

location of UK resident family members;

community demographics.

Decisions about whether to impose travel restrictions on a TPIM subject will be taken on a case-by-case basis and will reflect the need to minimise the risk that the individual poses to the public while taking into account the personal circumstances of the individual in question.
