NEW HOME SECRETARY GETS TOUGH ON HATE CRIME

Cash for churches, synagogues and mosques

Synagogues, churches and mosques will be given government cash to protect themselves against attacks by racists, under plans published this July. A £2.4 million fund will be set up to pay for “protective security measures” at places of worship, the Home Office said.

Amber Rudd, the new Home Secretary, is launching a new “hate crime” action plan, pressing for tougher sentences and providing a strategy to prevent hate crime on buses and trains, as well as efforts to prevent anti-Semitism and attacks on Muslim women.
