Fighting Terrorism


I spoke in the debate on the Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism motion- which added the so-called "Atomwaffen Division" (and its aliases) to the list of the UK's proscribed terror organisations, membership of which can carry a penalty of up to ten years in prison.

While supporting this motion, I noted that other Nazi organisations, including the Order of the Nine Angles, have not been acted upon despite the threat they pose to public safety and to the very fabric of multicultural life in Britain.

I hope the Home Secretary will act in ensuring that we are able to move more quickly to proscribe these organisations, to give the police the powers they need to disband them and stop them radicalising others.
