I refer the hon. Member to the speech I gave on 18 June 2015, a transcript of which can be found on the gov.uk, in which I say that “if you’re a troubled boy who is angry at the world, or a girl looking for an identity, for something to believe in and there’s something that is quietly condoned online, or perhaps even in parts of your local community, then it’s less of a leap to go from a British teenager to an ISIL fighter or an ISIL wife, than it would be for someone who hasn’t been exposed to these things”.

Does this answer the above question?
