THE ALL-PARTY PARLIAMENTARY INQUIRY INTO ANTISEMITISM
The All-Party Parliamentary Group Against Antisemitism commissioned an Inquiry into the state of antisemitism in the UK in 2005. Over one hundred written submissions were received from a wide range of agencies, organisations and individuals (see a selection of the written evidence submitted by clicking on the relevant paper). The MPs involved found that there had been a rise in antisemitism in the UK and was shocked by what they learned during the process of the inquiry. As a result, they published a report with 35 recommendations for government, Parliament and civil society in 2006 which paved the way for addressing antisemitism in the UK.
The opposition parties and a number of other organisations responded to the inquiry report. To see a selection of those responses see the following links:
