Motion text

That this House notes the 2018 anti-Semitic incidents report by the Community Security Trust (CST); further notes that the stated record of 1,652 anti-Semitic incidents represents a 16 per cent rise on the previous year and for the third year running the highest annual total of anti-Semitic incidents that CST has ever logged; is concerned that there is now a pattern of consistently high incident figures for attacks against Jewish people; is further concerned that these figures suggest an enduring situation in which people with anti-Semitic attitudes appear to be more confident in expressing their views; resolves to continue to support CST's important work and that of other key organisations; and further resolves to ensure the safety of the Jewish community and to continue to work across public and civil life to eradicate and challenge anti-Semitic incidents wherever they occur.
