Home Office Ministers have regular meetings as part of the process of policy development and delivery, including on activities taking place on social media which are relevant to hate crime. As was the case with previous administrations,

it is not the Government's practice to provide details of all such meetings. Online hate content is being considered as part of the development of the Online Harms White Paper to be published this Winter.
