HC Deb 13 February 1996 vol 271 cc512-3W
Mrs. Dunwoody

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on his policy towards United Kingdom-based groups which issue statements of support for middle east terrorist organisations. [14650]

Mr. Howard

The Government deplore all statements of support for terrorist organisations. The police and the Security Service attach a high priority to countering any active support in the United Kingdom for terrorist groups.

Where there is evidence of involvement in terrorist, action will be taken against individuals, either under the criminal law, supported as necessary by the prevention of terrorism legislation, or under immigration Act powers.
