To ask the Scottish Government, further to its news release of 13 June 2017, Next steps on tackling hate crime, what the practical implications of adopting the International Holocaust Memorial Trust's working definition of antisemitism will be.

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

The Scottish Government is determined that there should be no place in Scotland for any form of antisemitism or religious hatred that makes our communities feel insecure or threatened in their daily lives. We are committed to tackling all forms of discrimination and promoting a multi-faith and multi-cultural society based on mutual trust, respect and understanding. Adopting this definition will help to inform our work in this area. We will work with key partners including Police Scotland to explore further how the definition supports efforts to tackle anti-semitism.
