Counterterrorism

 

Lord Sheikh:

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their response to recent comments by the Quilliam Foundation, which receives funding from the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism, on collecting data on members of the Muslim community.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Home Office (Lord West of Spithead): We completely disagree with the remarks made by the Quilliam Foundation and have written to it to make this clear. Neither on this nor on any other issue does Quilliam speak for the Government.
