Volume 448: debated on Wednesday 28 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will ban Hizb-ut-Tehrir under his powers of proscription of extremist and terrorist organisations; and if he will make a statement. (76535)

The Terrorism Act 2006, which received Royal Assent on 30 March, widened the criteria for proscription to encompass those groups which glorify terrorism. All possible candidates for proscription will be considered against these widened criteria. We do not comment on individual groups that may be possible candidates for proscription.

The list of proscribed organisations is kept under constant review. For further information on proscribed groups please see:
