Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. It is absolutely right to highlight the important role that we all must play in building strong, resilient, integrated and cohesive communities. It is Newcastle’s diverse and united communities that make it such a great city. However, will the Secretary of State also recognise that the toxic combination of scapegoating refugees and migrants for cuts to public services, Muslims for terrorism, minorities for segregation and the white working class for xenophobia builds barriers to integration? Will he take steps to address such attitudes, wherever he may find them?

Most probably his strategic appointment doesn't allow him to address community/ culture contradictions - you have raised the right question about addressing the 'cause' and not only building on the 'effects' - the Casey review is full of omissions and contradictions - a good article at http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/husain-akhtar/casey-review_b...
