UK: Parliamentary Joint Human Rights Committee report: Annual Renewal of Control Orders Legislation 2010 (pdf):

"We have serious concerns about the control order system. Evidence shows the devastating impact of control orders on the subject of the orders, their families and their communities.... Our conclusion is that the current control order regime is no longer sustainable. A heavy onus rests on the Government to explain to Parliament why alternatives, such as intensive surveillance of the very small number of suspects currently subject to a control order, and more vigorous pursuit of the possibility of prosecution, are not now to be preferred."
