Chair's comments

Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP, Chair of the Committee, said:

"We have seen a deeply troubling upsurge in anti-Semitic incidents and speech across Britain and Europe in recent times, including within our political discourse.
 
It is one of our fundamental British values to stand together and speak out against intolerance and extremism in any and every form, and we particularly expect this from our political parties.
 
We are grateful to Jeremy Corbyn for coming to give evidence on his and the Labour Party’s position following the publication of the independent report on anti-Semitism in the Party on Thursday. He is the second Westminster Party leader to do so."
