Westminster City Council Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Westminster City Council,

In terms of the Freedom of Information Act of 2000, could you please provide me
with the following information on events related to terrorism - whether actually
committed, or whether discovered and prevented - by the authority for each of
the latest five years (e.g. if the latest available data are from 2016, then
please provide data for years between 2011 and 2016):

- The total number of terrorism events which have occurred in the authority;
- The total number of terrorism events which have been prevented from occurring in the authority;
- The total number of terrorism events which were planned from properties physically located in the authority;
- The total number of terrorism events which were planned in any properties which were vacant, and untenanted (i.e. the events were planned by people who were squatting in the properties where they were conducting their planning)?
- The total number of terrorism events which were planned in commercial properties which were vacant, and untenanted (i.e. the events were planned by people who were squatting in the properties where they were conducting their planning)?

The authority has already stated that it believes vacant properties are a risk
for the commission of terrorism, and it is in the public interest to know to
what extent that risk is validated by the actual data.

Note that I am simply asking for the high-level numbers, no methodology or
specifics are required.

Yours faithfully,

Gavin Chait
