Wednesday November 18 2009

Paul Goodman MP (pictured), the member of the House who has been assiduous in questioning CLG ministers on the allocations of Prevent funding to Muslim groups continues his probing with questions over allocations for the period 2009-2010 and 2010-2011.

Allocation of Prevent money to groups by local authorities in the UK was disclosed in an earlier, detailed report by the TaxPayers Alliance.

It is worth reminding readers that assessments of value for money and, more importantly, actual results, from the public funds dispersed to organisations and projects under Prevent rely to some extent on the views of Muslims themselves. So play your part and take an active interest in what amount of money is being spent where, by whom, and for what, and convey your thoughts and ideas on how you think it is faring to your local MP and Prevent Co-ordinator at your local council.
