All-Party Parliamentary Group against Antisemitism
The All-Party Parliamentary Group against Antisemitism is a group in the Parliament of the United Kingdom, chaired by John Mann MP which exists to "To combat antisemitism and help develop and seek implementation of effective public policy to combat antisemitism".
The Group commissioned the All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Antisemitism in 2005. The inquiry panel, chaired by now disgraced ex-Europe Minister Rt Hon Dr Denis MacShane MP, gathered written and oral evidence on antisemitism in Britain and published a report of their findings on 7 September 2006. The panel's recommendations included improved reporting and recording of antisemitic attacks; a crackdown on anti-Jewish activity on university campuses; and improved international co-operation to prevent the spread of racist material online.
In 2012, John Mann MP commissioned an all-party parliamentary inquiry into electoral conduct, based on a recommendation from the antisemitism report of 2006. That inquiry panel was chaired by Natascha Engel MP and its report was published in October 2013.
