To ask the Attorney General, how many people were prosecuted for offences relating to anti-semitism in the UK in each of the last five years.

The Whilst the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does flag cases on its case management system that are identified as racial or religious hate crimes, it does not maintain a central record of prosecutions for offences specifically relating to anti-semitism. Such information could only be obtained through a manual search of records which would incur disproportionate cost.
