Theresa May considers ‘second-tier’ banning orders

Ministers are “actively considering” a second-tier banning order that would outlaw groups that are not outright terrorist organisations but promote extremism and hatred on the streets, the home secretary, Theresa May, has confirmed. Ministers continue to be concerned about pockets of activity by Hizb ut-Tahrir, which is believed to have several thousand members in Britain, and is particularly active in radicalising young British Muslims on university campuses.
