To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 9 December (HL3756), whether they will create a process whereby people outside the Home Office can directly feed back and challenge Prevent training when it is considered to be straying beyond a remit of safeguarding people from becoming involved in terrorism, such as by identifying anti-fracking protesters as extremists.

Prevent is about safeguarding vulnerable people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. This cannot be done by Government alone, and training in Prevent plays a vital part in empowering people to safeguard those who need our help. Prevent training is kept under continued review. Those who receive training are encouraged to provide feedback on all aspects of it.
