Board of Deputies Vice President Marie van der Zyl has criticised the Labour Party’s decision to drop its investigation into antisemitism at Oxford University Labour Club after 11 months.

Marie said: “In her original report on allegations of antisemitism at Oxford University Labour Club, Baroness Royall said that there had been ‘some incidents of antisemitic behaviour’. Now, 11 months later, the Labour Party has dropped the investigation. This inability or unwillingness to confront what is a serious problem is damning for the party and will concern Labour supporting Jewish students on campus who feel their own party offers them no protection against abuse.”
