Speaking to BBC Panorama Justice minister Jeremy Wright discussed the threat of Islamic radicalisation behind bars in Britain by saying they should be prevented from inflicting their extreme views on others:
The police and security services do a difficult but important job making sure some of the most dangerous terrorists in this country end up where they belong - behind bars.
Once there, we must make sure they cannot inflict their extreme views on others.
The challenge that our prison staff face should not be underestimated but the public can be reassured - we are committed to tackling extremism."
