§ Miss Richardson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many people have been convicted, year by year since 1969, of terrorist offences other than offences under the Prevention of Terrorism Acts 1974 and 1976; and how many of these people had previously been detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Acts.
§ Mr. Rifkind
No crime or offence in Scots law is categorised as"terrorist". Figures for convictions for offences under the Prevention of Terrorism Acts 1974 and 1976 and for convictions following detention under the Acts are given in the Statistical Bulletins on the subject produced quarterly by the Home Office, copies of which are placed in the Library.
