HC Deb 18 July 2002 vol 389 cc553-4W
Mr. Love

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many arrests have been made as a result of the initiatives undertaken since September in the fight against terrorism; how much expenditure his Department has incurred in pursuing the fight against terrorism in the financial year 2001–02; and if he will make a statement. [69188]

Mr. Blunkett

By 11 July, 137 people had been arrested since 11 September 2001 under the Terrorism Act 2000. In addition, 11 people have been detained under Part 4 of the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001. Two of those have since left the United Kingdom

voluntarily. It would not be appropriate, for security reasons, to publish details of Home Office expenditure on counter-terrorism.
