Prosecutions data held by the department record information against offences defined in law. The law does not define an offence specifically of anti-Semitic hate crime, so the requested information is not held. Figures for whether Anti-Semitism was a motivation of other offences that have been prosecuted is not held centrally and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
