"Anti-Semitism is an extremely serious issue for both the Labour Party and for the whole of society. Being very proud of my own Jewish heritage, I am concerned that members of the Leeds Jewish community have raised their deep worries about anti-Semitism with me.
Like all my Parliamentary colleagues, I believe that the Labour Party must work with Jewish leaders and communities immediately, in order to root out the causes of anti-Semitism and stamp to it out, whenever it rears its ugly head.
I welcome Jeremy Corbyn’s offer to meet with the Board of Deputies and other Jewish organisations and I will continue to work with my constituents in Leeds North East to combat anti-Semitism wherever it manifests itself."
