The below Parliamentary question was asked by Andrew Rosindell on 2014-07-15.

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions he has had with his European counterparts on steps to tackle Islamic extremism in Europe.

Mr Tobias Ellwood

Countering violent extremism in Europe is an important issue on which the British Government maintains a regular, ongoing dialogue with our European partners. For example, we have engaged with the recent revision of the EU’s Strategy for Combating Radicalisation and Recruitment, and welcomed this as an opportunity to enhance the approach of Member States and the EU to countering radicalisation and further challenging extremism in Europe.
