The Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill abolishes the current regime of control orders, introduced under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, and replaces it with new Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (TPIMs). Like control orders, TPIMs are measures designed to restrict the behaviour and activities of individuals suspected of involvement in terrorism, who, the Government argues, cannot be prosecuted or deported.

This Note summarises proceedings on the Bill at report stage and third reading in the House of Commons, and is intended to be read in conjunction with House of Commons Library Research Papers 11/46, 11/62 and Standard Note SN/HA/6060.
