§ Mr. Cousins
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will estimate the number of people to whom clause 15 of the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill might apply. 
§ Beverley Hughes
Clause 15 of the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill, which refers to electronic monitoring, applies to persons subject to immigration control who appear to be at least 18 years of age where a residence restriction is imposed, where a reporting restriction could be imposed and where immigration bail is granted subject to a bail bond (except where bail is granted by a police officer or the Special Immigration Appeals Commission). The number of individuals to whom this would apply would also depend on individual risk assessment and the outcome of pilots which we plan to undertake once the legislation is in place.
