Extremism strategy bans terrorists from working with children

Convicted terrorists will be automatically barred from working with children and vulnerable people under new plans outlined by the Government.

The counter-extremism strategy bolsters the Disclosure and Barring Service to ensure terrorists are dealt with in the same way as those with sexual offence convictions against children.

It also hands parents the power to apply for children aged 16 and 17 to have their passports removed if they believe them to be at risk of ‘travelling abroad under the influence of extremists’. The move extends changes made in July that allow parents of children under 16 to make applications directly to HM Passports Office to prevent them travelling.

Launching the strategy, prime minister David Cameron will say: ‘The Government’s new Counter-Extremism Strategy is a clear signal of the choice we have made to take on this poisonous ideology with resolve, determination and the goal of a building a greater Britain.

'And a key part of this new approach is going further to protect children and vulnerable people from the risk of radicalisation by empowering parents and public institutions with all the advice, tools and practical support they need.’
