Islamist Militants

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent estimate he has made of the funds raised in the UK for overseas Islamist militants. (325029)

[holding answer 29 March 2010]: My right hon. Friend the Home Secretary published on 22 March this year the first annual report on progress against the objectives set out in the Government’s overall strategy for countering international terrorism (known as ‘CONTEST’), which includes information on work to tackle terrorist finance. For reasons of national security it would not be appropriate for me to comment on the details of the Government’s assessments of the levels of funds raised in the UK for terrorism overseas.
