Conor McGinn – 2021 Comments on De-radicalisation in Prisons

The comments made by Conor McGinn, the Shadow Security Minister, on 25 January 2021.

With growing concerns about the links between extremists in prison and terrorists who have carried out attacks on the outside, it’s clear that the Government is failing at de-radicalisation in prisons.

Ministers need to announce a coherent de-radicalization strategy in prisons, as well as urgently assessing how to protect the public from those who continue to pose a dangerous security threat despite being behind bars.
