Islamist Extremists (Monitoring)

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 24 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what advice he has issued to universities on monitoring the activities of Islamist extremists in universities. (95759)

[holding answer 20 October 2006]: We have been consulting within Government, with Universities UK and with representatives from individual institutions to develop appropriate advice to universities on ways in which they can address violent extremism through their work to promote good campus relations. This follows UUK guidance last year entitled, “Promoting Good Campus Relations”. The consultation is continuing and we intend to issue the guidance later this year.
