Antisemitism inquiry


In a cross-party report agreed unanimously without division, the Home Affairs Committee calls on all political leaders to tackle the growing prevalence of this pernicious form of hate. It notes that "the failure of the Labour Party consistently to deal with antisemitic incidents in recent years risks lending force to allegations that elements of the Labour movement are institutionally anti-Semitic", but stresses that all parties must examine whether the Committee's recommended reforms should be applied to their own processes for training and disciplining their members and activists.

The Committee's short inquiry into antisemitism looks at whether prejudice against the Jewish community has increased and the particular dangers facing Jewish people arising from terrorism.
