Nick Thomas-Symonds comments on new Prevent statistics released by the Home Office today

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, commenting on new Prevent statistics released by the Home Office today, said:

“These appalling statistics show the level of threat our security services are bravely dealing with on a daily basis.

 

“We have long warned that vile far-right extremism is quickly rising and these figures show how big the threat has become.

 

“Our police forces have had one hand tied behind their backs, by losing thousands of officers under the Tories on top of cuts to preventative services. Urgent action is needed before more lives are ruined.”
