The Foreign & Commonwealth Office has not made any assessment of whether there are financial links between extremist Islamist groups in the Middle East and North Africa and extremist Islamist groups in the UK. In July 2017 the Government concluded its internal review into the funding for Islamist extremist activity in the UK, and issued a Written Ministerial Statement. The review has improved the Government’s understanding of the nature, scale and sources of funding for Islamist extremism in the UK. The Statement is a comprehensive reflection of the review’s findings: www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2017-07-12/HCWS39
