answer text <p>Between April 2015 and March 2018 there were 21,042 referrals to Prevent in England and Wales, of which 3,039 related to right wing extremism. These referrals come from frontline practitioners, police and the public.</p><p>In 2015/16, 759 (10%) of the 7,631 referrals related to right wing extremism. In 2016/17 968 (16%) of the 6,093 referrals related to right wing extremism. In 2017/18 1312 (18%) of the 7,318 referrals related to right wing extremism. This reflects a 73% increase in the number of referrals relating to right wing extremism over the previous three years.</p><p>It is also worth noting the breakdown of individuals who later go on to receive support on Channel in England and Wales. In 2015/16, 26% of those that received support on Channel related to right wing extremism. This increased to 44% in 2017/18, marking a significant increase in the proportion of right wing extremist Prevent referrals going on to receive support on Channel.</p><p>Prevent explicitly addresses all forms of terrorism, including when it is inspired by the ideologies of right wing extremism. The Home Office will continue to allocate resource against the areas of highest risk.</p>

In March 2017, the UK signed new agreements with Pakistan to enhance cooperation on a number of security and home affairs priorities, including on criminal finances. There has since been positive engagement between the UK and Pakistan on these issues at senior and Ministerial level.</p> more like this
