Cameron: Task force will ask serious questions

Prime Minister David Cameron said the Government's new task force on tackling terrorism and extremism will ask serious questions.

It will concentrate on:

  • Whether rules for charities are too lax and allow extremists to prosper
  • If enough is done to disrupt groups that incite hatred or violence
  • The problem of extremist groups in universities
  • More support for madrassas to prevent radicalisation
  • Help for mosques that want to expel extremists and recruit imams who understand Britain
