Ruth Kelly meeting

Asked for further information on Ruth Kelly's meeting today, the PMOS said that Ruth Kelly was meeting with the local authority leaders. She would be addressing the issue of extremism across the board, and she would say that extremism was not just a problem for Muslim communities, but rather, for all of us, and we all had a shared responsibility in taking it on. In terms of the Muslim community, we must proactively support the work being done by many moderates within the Muslim community and elsewhere to take on such extremists. The PMOS said that action already taken by the local authorities in fighting extremism since 7th July included the setting up of forums against extremism, and other education programmes which taught the rejection of violence etc. Therefore, there was already a lot of work underway.
