MPs join criticism of Labour’s anti-Semitism code

Campaigners and some Labour MPs have criticised the party’s new code of conduct on anti-Semitism.

The code states that “anti-Semitism is racism. It is unacceptable in our party and in wider society”.

But some critics think it does not sign up in full to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition of anti-Semitism.

Labour insists it does meet the full IHRA definition, which it says was adopted by the party in December 2016.

Labour MPs Chuka Umunna, Liz Kendall and Anna Turley are among those who have been critical.

The Jewish Leadership Council and the Board of Deputies of British Jews said in a joint statement that it was “impossible to understand” why Labour had not adopted the IHRA definition in full – as the UK Jewish community, governments and local councils had done.
