(2) how many (a) males and (b) females who were (i) prosecuted and (ii) convicted of terrorist-related offences were resident in Southend in each of the last five years. 
Mr. McNulty: We do not collate this information in the format requested.
Statistics compiled from police records show that between 11 September 2001 and 31 March 2007, 1,228 arrests were made under the Terrorism Act 2000 or under other legislation, where the investigation was conducted as a terrorist investigation. Of those charged 41 were convicted under the Terrorism Act and 183 under other legislation including conspiracy to murder.

Alan Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the Answer of 13 November 2007, Official Report, column 86W, on terrorism detainees, how many of the eight people detained and charged were charged with terrorism offences only.

1x Possession of a Prohibited Weapon (Sec 5.1 Firearms Act 1968)
1x Possession of a silencer without a firearms licence (Sec 1.1b Firearms Act 1968)
