HM Government does not routinely comment on assessments of alleged extremist behaviour by individuals. Tackling the threat that extremism poses to all UK communities is at the heart of HMG’s Counter-Extremism Strategy, and we are working in partnership with communities across the country to do so.

In July 2015, the Prime Minister charged Louise Casey with carrying out a review of ways to boost integration in UK communities to combat the divisive threat of extremism. An interim report for the review is due to be published in the early part of this year.
