To ask the Scottish Government, further to its news release of 13 June 2017, Next steps on tackling hate crime, which organisations asked it to adopt the International Holocaust Memorial Trust's working definition of antisemitism, and what issues it identified with the previous definition.

Answered by Angela Constance (26/06/2017):

The Scottish Government engages frequently with the Scottish Council for Jewish Communities and others on a range of issues, and one of these has been the International Holocaust Memorial Trust’s working definition of anti-Semitism. The Scottish Government continues to work with representatives to support the needs of the Jewish communities, building strength and eliminating fear in Scotland. We consider the definition to be helpful and it will assist in informing our approach to tackling anti-Semitism.
