We are appalled by the Hamas-led terrorist attacks against the people of Israel. We stand in complete support and solidarity with the people of Israel and the Jewish community. Our thoughts are with all the innocent affected. We are deeply disturbed to see that the attacks are already triggering antisemitic incidents here in the UK.

Learning from the story of Anne Frank, we will continue to educate thousands of young people across the country about the human cost of antisemitism and how to speak out against it. We remain determined to build a world free from all forms of hatred and prejudice.

We made this statement on Monday 9 October 2023.
