The Co-operative Party's National Executive Committee (NEC) recently discussed the Party’s approach to anti-Semitism, and agreed the following actions to ensure that there is no place for anti-Semitism in the Co-operative Party.

The NEC recently discussed the Party’s approach to anti-Semitism and shared the grave concern expressed by members of the Parliamentary Group about the utterly unacceptable nature of the abuse and harassment that Jewish MPs including members of the Co-operative Parliamentary Group have suffered. They were united in their condemnation of this form of behaviour and asked the Chair to write to those MPs to formally express their solidarity.

An number of actions were agreed to ensure that there is no place for anti-Semitism in the Co-operative Party.
