Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown says when Prevent or other authority counsels a young person who is still intent on going to ISIS or other similar organisation, then the Government should consider withdrawing their passport for their own safety.
Hon. Friends have mentioned the possibility of withdrawing passports. If a minor has been counselled by Prevent or any other authority in this country and is still intent on going to ISIS or some similar organisation, is there not a strong case for withdrawing their passport for their own safety?
My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Generally in the circumstances he describes, if further action is needed, such as the withdrawal of the passport—other measures are available—we would not hesitate to take it.
