Stephen Barclay – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Communities and Local Government

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Stephen Barclay on 2015-01-14.

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, with reference to paragraph 4.2 of the report of the Prime Minister’s Task Force on Tackling Radicalisation and Extremism, published in December 2013, in which local authorities the Government has intervened because they are deemed not to be taking the problem of radicalisation seriously.

Stephen Williams

No local authority has been subject to statutory intervention because of a failure to take seriously the problem of radicalisation. The Government maintains close links with local authorities on work to tackle radicalisation. Should the need arise we will work with local authorities to address any concerns before considering whether there is any need for intervention.
