That this House is outraged and horrified by the attack on a Jewish school in Toulouse, France; sends condolences to all the families, friends and communities affected and to the people and Parliament of France; notes the recommendations of the All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Anti-Semitism which set out a political roadmap for tackling anti-Semitism at governmental, parliamentary and civic levels; furthernotes the improved arrangements for security of Jewish schools, recording of anti-Semitic incidents by police and the improved prosecution practices resulting from the inquiry recommendations; believes that robustness in tackling racism is critical even when uncomfortable to do so; further notes that British examples of best practice such as the work of the Community Security Trust can be modelled by other countries; calls on the Government to share with countries across Europe and beyond the work carried out in the UK so that parliaments across the world can support minority communities in defending themselves; believes that evil like this, though rare in recent years, can strike at any place at any time in any country; further believes that elected politicians must be the ones to take a lead in fighting anti-Semitism and racism; and further calls on parliaments across Europe and the world to keep this issue on their agenda.
