Extremism report is welcomed

November 2019

A new report by the Extremism Commission has been cautiously welcomed by free speech campaigners. Under original proposals there were real fears that evangelicals – among others – could be labelled as extremists just because they hold certain unfashionable beliefs.

But campaign group Defend Free Speech which includes Christian and secular organisations welcomed the Commission’s latest report. A spokesman said, ‘we are relieved that the Commission is not calling for new “counter extremism” laws’.
