Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl  has reacted to the suspension by Labour of Tower Hamlets Councillor Mohammed Pappu.

Marie said: “With these overtly racist views, Labour has done the right thing in suspending Mohammed Pappu. The party now needs to deal urgently and thoroughly with its huge backlog of disciplinary cases, some of which go back years.”
