Home Affairs Select Committee investigation into anti-Semitism and Government response

In April 2016, the Home Affairs Select Committee launched a short inquiry into anti-Semitism, looking at whether prejudice against the Jewish community has increased and the particular dangers facing Jewish people arising from terrorism.

The Committee published its report following the inquiry in October 2016. The report says that the first half of 2016 saw an 11% rise in antisemitic incidents reported to Community Security Trust (CST), compared with the same period during the previous year.

The Government responded to the report in December 2016.
