The Extremism Task Force, which I chair, enables a cross-Government, coherent response to the threat facing the UK and the pressing need to tackle the poisonous ideology of Islamist extremism. As the chair of the Task Force, each responsible Minister reports to me on their progress in delivering their Departmental priorities to tackle extremism.

The recommendations by the Task Force were published in December 2013 and can be found on the gov.uk website. As I have previously set out, the vast majority of the recommendations have been implemented. The fact that agreement has not been reached across the Coalition on two recommendations - the introduction of civil banning orders in relation to both extremist groups and individuals - is well-documented.

The Task Force is supported by a secretariat in Cabinet Office to drive Departmental progress on actions arising from those discussions. I receive regular updates on implementation.
