This Government has been clear there should be no safe space online for terrorists and their supporters to radicalise, recruit, incite, or inspire. We continue to work closely with industry to come up with new innovative ways for tackling terrorist use of the internet. Working with international partners we continue to push industry to take a more proactive approach to terrorist and extremist content on their platforms.
