Question in the Lords by the Marquess of Lothian (Michael Ancram):

To ask Her Majesty’s Government (1) how the Government-sponsored review of the Muslim Brotherhood, led by Sir John Jenkins, has informed Government policy towards the Muslim Brotherhood; and (2) how much the review cost.
Answer from Lord Bridges of Lothian (Minister at the Cabinet Office)

The findings of the Muslim Brotherhood Review have been considered by Whitehall Departments in a process led by the National Security Adviser. It has illustrated some of the challenges posed by those whose views may be seen to contribute towards creating the space for more extreme views to flourish. The Government is continuing to develop our broader policy response on this.

The costs of the review were absorbed in routine administrative spend with the exception of Sir John Jenkins’ travel which amounted to £8791.79. The Government sought to save travel costs as far as possible through working through our network of Embassies and High Commissions; packaging regional travel to avoid more expensive fares from London; and hosting international partners in London.
