Home Affairs Committee

Hate crime and its violent consequences inquiry

Inquiry status: Concluded

Due to the general election on 12 December 2019 the Committee has now closed this inquiry. Following the dissolution of Parliament on 6 November, all Select Committees will cease to exist until after the general election. If an inquiry on this subject is held in the future, the Committee may refer to the evidence already gathered as part of this inquiry.

Scope of the inquiry

In the last Parliament the Home Affairs Committee conducted a wide-ranging inquiry into ‘Hate crime and its violent consequences’. The inquiry was cut short by the June General Election but the Committee was able to publish a report in May 2017 on Abuse, hate and extremism online, which focused on the role of social media companies in addressing hate crime and illegal content on their platforms.

The new Committee in the current Parliament has resumed the hate crime inquiry.
