To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment he has made of the potential effect on the operations of the Muslim Brotherhood in the UK of the decision by the US Government to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group; and if he will make a statement.
Answer (Mr Ben Wallace)
The Government concluded a comprehensive review of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2015. The review concluded the movement is a secretive organisation and that parts of it – globally – have a highly ambiguous relationship with violent extremism.
The Government remains committed to keeping under review the views promoted and activities undertaken by the Muslim Brotherhood’s associates in the UK, in accordance with the five commitments included in the former Prime Minister’s statement to Parliament.
We will continue to consider any new evidence on the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities against the UK’s legal thresholds.
