We have had no discussions with the Scottish Government about that Government’s adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism. However, we welcome the recent decision of the Scottish Government to accept the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism, following discussions between them and the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
