I am grateful to the Board of Deputies, the Jewish Leadership Council and the Community Security Trust for a positive and constructive meeting about tackling antisemitism.
I am absolutely committed to rooting out antisemitism from our party and our society.
When members of Jewish communities express genuine anxieties, we must recognise them as we would those of any other community. Their concerns are not “smears”. Jews belong in the Labour Party and we are utterly committed to making it a safe and welcoming place for them.
I have charged our new General Secretary Jennie Formby with improving our disciplinary procedures as her top priority to ensure all complaints are dealt with swiftly and fairly. We are grateful for the input from Jewish community groups, who we will continue to listen to carefully.
We will lay out the further steps we are taking in the coming weeks. We will continue to engage and work with Jewish community organisations to deal with this issue. Our party will not fail our Jewish brothers and sisters.
I was proud to be at the unveiling of Millicent Fawcett’s statue.
But still 90% of statues in London are of men.
We must have a statue to recognise Mary Wollstonecraft’s immense contribution in the fight for gender equality.

As part of its inquiry into hate crime, I will join my colleagues on the Home Affairs Select Committee. Naz Shah MP
HOME AFFAIRS SELECT COMMITTEE – TUESDAY 24th AprilAs part of its inquiry into hate crime, I will join my colleagues on…
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.
