Terrorism: Hizb ut-Tahrir

Volume 709: debated on Monday 16 March 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what progress they have made in banning Hizb ut-Tahrir, as announced by the then Prime Minister in August 2005. [HL1886]

Hizb ut-Tahrir (HuT) along with other organisations which cause us concern is kept under continuous review. As and when new material comes to light it is considered and the organisation re-assessed as part of that process. Any decision to proscribe must be based on evidence that a group is concerned in terrorism as defined in the Terrorism Act 2000, and must be proportionate.
