Will the Minister join me in congratulating Waqar Ahmed and his team in Birmingham on all their excellent work with Prevent and on becoming national leaders in the field, which is mostly because a lot of their work is community-led and bottom-up?

Will he do everything he can in the Home Office to ensure that the police are given the powers they need to keep our streets safe?
