to the website of The Parliamentary Committee against Antisemitism.
The rising tide of antisemitism in the UK is something that deeply concerns us all. As a group of parliamentarians
we recognise our responsibility to take a lead in the fight against this latest incarnation of what is surely the oldest form
Shortly after I was elected as Chair of this committee in the autumn of 2005, I commissioned the All-Party
Parliamentary Inquiry into Antisemitism in the UK. Published
last year in 2006, the Inquiry Report received much coverage and was welcomed by many who share our determination to confront
and defeat antisemitism in this country and beyond.
In March of 2007 the government published its response to
the Inquiry which welcomed many of the recommendations and echoed our concern in the face of a sharp increase in incident
figures and general atmosphere of hostility towards Jewish people.
The committee is now fully focused on working
with government and other partners to implement these and other measures to send out the clearest of messages; intolerance
will no longer be tolerated.
I hope that you find both our work and the material on this website to be of interest.
