answer text <p>As of June 2018, approximately 40 individuals have been convicted on their return from Syria/Iraq, either because of offences committed overseas or for other activity linked to their involvement in terrorism. The convictions are for a range of offences and are not limited to offences covered by terrorism legislation. In some cases, the individuals in question may not know they have been investigated and prosecuted (for non-terrorist offences) because of their engagement in terrorism. I am therefore unable to go into further details of specific offences or sentences received.</p><p>The safety and security of our country, our people and our communities remains the Government’s number one priority.Around 900 people of national security concern travelled from the UK to engage in the conflict in Syria and Iraq. Of these, approximately 20% have been killed while overseas, and around 40% have returned to the UK.The majority of those who have returned did so in the earlier stages of the conflict, and were investigated on their return. A significant proportion of these individuals are assessed as no longer being of national security concern.</p><p>Everyone – male or female, of any age – who returns from taking part in the conflict in Syria or Iraq must expect to be investigated by the police to determine if they have committed criminal offences, and to ensure that they do not pose a threat to our national security.</p>

answer text <p>The Government does not want or expect a no deal outcome, and we have now reached an agreement, in principle, with the EU. The Prime Minister has been clear that, in any scenario, there is no question of asking EU citizens resident here to leave. On 21 September, the Prime Minister confirmed that, in the event of no deal, all EU citizens resident in the UK before 29 March 2019 will be able to stay, their rights will be protected, and they will be able to live their lives broadly as they do now.</p><p>On 30 October, the Prime Minister extended that commitment to citizens of Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein; and we are close to reaching an agreement with Switzerland. We will set out further details shortly, so those affected can have the clarity and certainty they need.</p> more like this
