National Holocaust Memorial Centre and Learning Service

Question for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

UIN HL13504, tabled on 6 February 2019

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the risk that the UK Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre will attract the attention of Holocaust-deniers and anti-Zionists if it is sited close to Parliament.

The Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre will have security arrangements similar to the many other public buildings in Westminster. By using the latest technology and security methodology available we intend for the security aspects to be integrated into the design so it does not impact on the visitor experience.

To achieve this we are working with security experts, government agencies and the Metropolitan Police to ensure the necessary security measures are put in place.
