answer text <p>The police are aware of events taking place around the world such as San Diego, Sri Lanka and Christchurch and adapt their operational policing plans, including increased high visibility patrolling, to protect and reassure all our faith communities.</p><p>On 19 March, the Home Secretary announced a boost in funding for the hate crime Places of Worship Protective Security Funding Scheme to £1.6 million for 2019/20 (excluding synagogues). This is double the amount awarded in 2018/19. Furthermore, £5 million over three years has also been committed to providing security training to places of worship in England and Wales. This will enable staff and volunteers to develop the security understanding necessary to make security measures work more effectively.</p><p>On 27 February, the Home Secretary announced increased funding for the Jewish Community Protective Security Grant to £14 million for 2019/20. Although this fund is focussed primarily on security at Jewish Schools a proportion of funding is allocated to the security of synagogues. This Grant was introduced in 2015 following a number of terrorist attacks on Jews and Jewish sites in Europe.</p><p>More widely, the Home Secretary has committed to consulting with faith communities to understand what more could and should be done to help protect faith communities at their places of worship.</p>

answer text <p>As of June 2018, approximately 40 individuals have been convicted on their return from Syria/Iraq, either because of offences committed overseas or for other activity linked to their involvement in terrorism. The convictions are for a range of offences and are not limited to offences covered by terrorism legislation.

answer text <p>On 22 January 2019, the Government announced that there would be an Independent Review of the Prevent programme. The purpose of the Independent Review, as set out in legislation, is to review the Government Strategy for supporting people vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism. Work is underway to appoint the independent Reviewer, define the Terms of Reference, and to recruit a secretariat to support this work.</p><p>To ensure this Review is open, transparent and objective, it will be conducted by a Reviewer who is independent from Government. The team which will support the work of the Review will sit outside the Office for Security and Counter Terrorism, which has lead responsibility for Prevent.</p><p>Prevent covers a broad remit and this will be reflected in the Terms of Reference. The House will be informed of the arrangements for the Independent Review of the Prevent Strategy, including the Terms of Reference, by 12 August 2019, as required by the Counter Terrorism and Border Security Act 2019 (six months from Royal Assent).</p><p>This review is an opportunity to further increase the transparency of the Prevent programme and engage with stakeholders. As I said in the House on 22 January 2019, I am happy to take suggestions on the Independent Review from Members of the House.</p><p>Once the Reviewer has been appointed, that person will have the discretion to decide how to engage stakeholders in the Review and how to draw on expert opinion on the wide range of issues involved in the delivery of Prevent.</p>
