UK Liberty

Interesting probe from David Davis

David Davis

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many of the individuals arrested and detained since 1 August 2006 under the Terrorism Act 2006 for a period of up to and including 28 days have since been re-arrested.John Reid, Home Secretary

The statistics requested are not available as the police do not routinely collate information on re-arrests under terrorism legislation.

I wonder if David Davis asked this because he wanted to establish if there was a need for 90 day detention without charge.

If such information was routinely collated, and there were re-arrests, wouldn’t that support the case for 90 day detention?
