Catherine West MP signs Holocaust Educational Trust Book of Commitment

There is no place in the Labour movement or in our country for anti-Semitism.  I have consistently said that Labour must do more and do it quickly to eradicate it from the Party and throughout my time in Parliament I have sought to raise the concerns of the Jewish Community with the Party and promote understanding.  As MP, I was a member/supporter of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on anti-Semitism and the APPG on British Jews.

I have worked tirelessly to promote understanding in my constituency of the important contribution of the Jewish community and have wholeheartedly supported important civic events including the annual Civic Service, Holocaust Memorial Day, Chanukah and the community Menorah lighting in Crouch End.

My website contains a range of statements I’ve made on the subject since I was first elected, setting out details of actions I have taken and concerns I have raised.  Some of these are gathered here below:






  • In November 2018 I attended the first Sara conference to pledge my support and solidarity with colleagues facing appalling racist and sexist discrimination, with Jewish women MPs facing disproportionate levels of anti-Semitic abuse online.







  • Soon after I was first elected, I took part in a visit organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust to Auschwitz-Birkenau and wrote about my experience.
