A spokesperson for the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the national representative organisation of the UK Jewish community, said: “We warmly welcome the Government’s measures to prevent town hall boycotts against Israel. These boycotts are divisive and undermine good community relations. The new steps, announced by Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government Sajid Javid, will ensure that all suppliers of goods and services receive equal treatment and do not need to fear prejudice.”
