I was wondering what proportion of people arrested for terrorist offences get convicted:

From 11 September 2001 to 31 March 2007 1,228 arrests were made:

1,165 arrests under the Terrorism Act 2000;

63 arrests under legislation other than the Terrorism Act, where the investigation was conducted as a terrorist investigation.

Of the total 1228 arrested:

132 charged with terrorism legislation offences only;

109 charged with terrorism legislation offences and other criminal offences;

195 charged under other legislation including murder, grievous bodily harm, firearms, explosives offences, fraud, false documents;
Of those charged:

41 were convicted under Terrorism legislation;

183 convicted under other legislation[…]

114 at or awaiting trial.
