Question S3W-34779

To ask the Scottish Executive whether it will implement the recommendations of the UK Parliament’s All-Party Inquiry into Antisemitism

Alex Neil MSP: Implementation of these recommendations is a matter for the UK Government. The Scottish Government is committed to tackling all forms of prejudice and discrimination and to creating the One Scotland of many cultures that we all aspire to. We have a positive on-going dialogue with the Jewish community in Scotland and as recently as 25 May the First Minister acknowledged the positive contribution this community has made to Scotland’s multi-cultural society, and heard from members of the community first hand, at a public meeting organised by the Glasgow Jewish Education Forum. We are fully committed to continuing this dialogue and ensuring that issues raised by Scotland’s Jewish community, including anti-Semitism, are being properly and appropriately addressed.
