WHAT IT URGED... AND WHAT HAP­PENED

The Jewish Chronicle - - News -

Only a few po­lice forces in the UK have the ca­pa­bil­ity to record an­tisemitic in­ci­dents, the re­port said. — In re­sponse, the Home Of­fice is to de­liver a uni­form na­tion­wide sys­tem by 2009 based on Metropoli­tan Po­lice method of re­port­ing in­ci­dents as racist and an­tisemitic.

The Crown Pros­e­cu­tion Ser­vice should in­ves­ti­gate the low num­ber of race­hate prose­cu­tions and take steps to ad­dress this prob­lem. — The CPS is con­duct­ing a widerang­ing in­ter­nal re­view.

The gov­ern­ment should set up a cross­de­part­men­tal task force on an­tisemitism. — The task force had its sec­ond meet­ing yes­ter­day, chaired by a gov­ern­ment min­is­ter.

The Home Of­fice should give more sup­port in ad­dress­ing the se­cu­rity needs of Bri­tish Jews, es­pe­cially in syn­a­gogues and schools. — Schools Min­is­ter Jim Knight an­nounced cap­i­tal fund­ing for new se­cu­rity projects at Jewish schools.

The De­part­ment for Ed­u­ca­tion and Skills should place a statu­tory duty on all schools to fos­ter en­gage­ment through joint ac­tiv­ity and cur­ric­ula. — A na­tional roll­out of the Schools Link­ing Net­work.

Grow­ing prob­lem of an­tisemitism on univer­sity cam­puses: the panel called for all vice-chan­cel­lors to take an ac­tive in­ter­est in com­bat­ing racist in­ci­dents of this na­ture, and rec­om­mended the es­tab­lish­ment of a na­tional work­ing group to ad­dress the is­sue. — Univer­si­ties are work­ing on this but the De­part­ment for In­no­va­tion, Univer­si­ties and Skills has been rep­ri­manded for be­ing slow to re­spond.
