The Government’s Counter-Terrorism Strategy (CONTEST) is intended to tackle all forms of terrorism and extremism, including that from the far right. In addition, the Home Secretary announced last year that the Home Office has taken responsibility for a new cross-government counter-extremism strategy. The strategy will aim to build up the public sector and civil society to identify extremism in all of its forms, confront it, challenge it and defeat it. It will cover extremism in all its forms: not just Islamist extremism but neo-Nazism and other forms of extremism too.

The investigation of Neo Nazi training camps is an operational matter for the police.
