Motion text

That this House notes the 2016 incidents report by the Community Security Trust (CST); further notes that the report details the highest annual total of antisemitic incidents that CST has ever recorded of 1,309 cases, an increase of 36 per cent from the 2015 total; is concerned that the pattern in incidents marks a departure from a correlation with trigger events and that there is a new pattern of consistently high incident totals; is further concerned that factors reported to be possibly contributing to the historic rise in incidents include reactions to the EU Referendum, high profile coverage of antisemitism allegations relating to the Labour Party and terrorist attacks on Jewish communities in Europe; resolves to continue to offer cross-party parliamentary support for the CST and its activities including security for Jewish schools and other communal institutions and its monitoring of incidents; and further resolves to work with Government and relevant organisations to ensure the recommendations of the All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Antisemitism reports are fully implemented.
