Higher Education: Terrorism

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 26 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills how many reports have been made to the Government by higher education providers about extremism on campus in the last 12 months. (175745)

No formal written reports have been submitted to HMG by higher education providers on extremism on campus in the last 12 months. However, there is a regular on-going dialogue between officials and Ministers in the DIUS and higher education providers, Universities UK, the NUS and the University and College Union concerning the issue of violent extremist activity in higher education.

All higher education providers have regular contact with their local police force and have ongoing discussions about issues and concerns within their HEI.
