Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted the Government’s decision to fine those who breach Online Harms legislation.

Marie said:  “We welcome the Government’s confirmation that heavy fines will be levied on all social media companies operating in the UK who breach Online Harms legislation. But, with regards to antisemitism, this legislation may fall short unless the newly appointed social media regulator adopts the IHRA definition of antisemitism and judges companies’ protection of Jewish users against that standard.”
