National Security

Volume 478: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether she has liaised with her counterparts in the (a) Welsh Assembly Government, (b) Northern Ireland Executive and (c) Scottish Executive in respect of the application of anti-terrorism measures to the devolved Administrations as set out in The Prevent Strategy: A Guide for Local Partners in England. (210895)

The Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism in the Home Office works with colleagues in the devolved Administrations to ensure that the Government's counter-terrorism strategy, CONTEST, is delivered effectively across the UK.

The Prevent Guide published on 3 June 2008 is aimed at local partners in England only because of the different local delivery arrangements in the devolved Administrations. However, much of the cross-cutting information it contains will help local partners and partnerships in the devolved Administrations to develop and implement effective actions to stop people becoming or supporting terrorists or violent extremists.
