Summary: 

The security orders used to keep the public safe from former jihadists are so expensive that experts fear most of those returning from Syria are being allowed to roam free. The Home Office has spent nearly £5 million keeping 23 suspects under restrictions, The Times can disclose. Annual legal bills have been as high as £1 million while accommodation has cost as much as £70,000 a year per person. That figure excludes the cost of tagging and police work.
