To ask the Scottish Government what actions it is taking to combat far right extremism.


Answered by Kenny MacAskill (19/09/2012):

The Scottish Government is committed to creating a society in which intolerance and prejudice have no place and in building trust, respect and understanding within Scotland’s multi-faith and multi-cultural society.

Prejudice and intolerance can fracture communities and undermine community cohesion and at its extremes can give rise to serious criminal behaviour. That is why we give priority to work on community safety, support programmes to promote equality, tackle discrimination and hate crime. It is also why we work closely with police colleagues through, among other things, the Scottish Preventing Violent Extremism Unit, to create a safer Scotland within which there is no place for violent extremism of any kind.
