Diane Abbott comments on the ill-advised appointment of Sara Khan

Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, commenting on the Government’s new anti-extremism commission, said:

“The appointment of Sara Khan has drawn cross-party criticism. It seems to be a very ill-advised appointment, based on the widespread perception that she has only come to prominence because of her support for the Government’s Prevent strategy. It is not an appointment that will build confidence across our communities.”
