Board of Deputies reacts to Labour’s Action Plan on antisemitism

Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has responded to Labour’s newly published Action Plan for Driving out Antisemitism from the Labour Party which has been approved by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

Marie said: “The EHRC’s acceptance of Labour’s response to its recommendations shows it is satisfied this plan will tackle the problems they identified within the Party. Labour’s Action Plan provides a suitable basis to move to the next stage although there are certain things that require further detail, including around the independent disciplinary process and cases that are currently in progress under a broken system. We note Labour’s ongoing attempts to deal with this issue. For it to work, the plan will have to be followed closely at every step. We and other Jewish communal organisations will be closely monitoring the situation to ensure that Labour follows through on the changes it has pledged to make.”
