Gillian Merron, Chief Executive of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said: “The Board of Deputies welcomes the decision by the Leader’s Committee of London Councils to recommend adoption the full International Holocaust Remembrance Association definition of antisemitism with all its examples. We have found the London Councils umbrella body to be constructive allies in confronting the challenge of antisemitism and this move shows that London’s local authority leaders from across the political spectrum are treating the issue with due seriousness.”
