Metropolitan Police's Counter-Terrorist Social Media Monitoring Unit

EDM number 9 in 2017-19, proposed by John Mann on 21/06/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Internet and cybercrime, Police and Terrorism.

That this House considers the failure to fund properly the Metropolitan Police's counter-terrorist social media monitoring unit to have been a grave error; believes that a lack of resources endangers UK citizens because it increases the chance of terrorist recruitment and organisation going unnoticed; and calls on the Government to immediately increase the budget available to counter-terrorism forces in the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
