Board of Deputies of British Jews President Marie van der Zyl has responded to the adoption of the internationally recognised definition of antisemitism by the Parliamentary Labour Party.

She said: “We would like to thank the Parliamentary Labour Party which has  adopted the full International Holocaust Remembrance Holocaust Alliance definition of antisemitism with all of its illustrative examples. Unlike the National Executive Committee of the party, the PLP passed the definition without any unnecessary and damaging caveats or addendums.”
