British Muslim Citizenship Toolkits

Volume 448: debated on Tuesday 11 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many British Muslim citizenship ‘toolkits’ have been dispatched by his Department. (71939)

[holding answer 18 May 2006]: I have been asked to reply.

The development of a British Muslim citizenship toolkit was one of the recommendations of the “Preventing Extremism Together” report published in November 2005 by work groups from the Muslim community.

The Government’s view is that this toolkit should be developed by Muslim organisations with our support.

The Government are supporting individuals and organisations to implement the recommendations but responsibility for this lies with the Muslim community. Good progress is being made on a number of the recommendations and the Government are encouraging Muslim organisations to develop this toolkit.
