To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims Islamophobia defined: the inquiry into a working definition of Islamophobia, published in November 2018; and what assessment they have made of whether the evidence that was used in that report was balanced and objective.

We are aware that some have suggested that establishing a definition of Islamophobia could strengthen efforts to confront bigotry and division. We are examining the options for an agreed definition of Islamophobia and intend to develop this through the Anti-Muslim Hatred Working Group.
