That this House welcomes the Prime Minister's announcement of 12 December 2016 that Britain will adopt a formal definition of antisemitism in response to the work of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA); recognises that a recommendation formally to adopt a definition was first made in the All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Anti-Semitism report of 2006; further welcomes the stated cross-party support for the definition, including from the Leader of the Opposition; congratulates the IHRA and its 31 member countries for adopting the definition; supports efforts to ensure wider adoption of the definition across the continent at the Organisation for Security and Co-Operation in Europe and elsewhere; believes that a single definition will help identification of antisemitism; further recognises that police forces have for some time already used the definition for training purposes; welcomes the Government's update report on progress made in addressing the recommendations of the All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Anti-Semitism report of 2015; and calls on all political parties and other organisations formally to adopt the definition and use it to take action against antisemitism.
