Antisemitism: Prosecutions

Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN 195490, tabled on 26 November 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what estimate he has made of the number of people who have been prosecuted for anti-semitic hate crime in each of the last three years.

Answered on

29 November 2018

Prosecutions data held by the department record information against offences defined in law. The law does not define an offence specifically of anti-Semitic hate crime, so the requested information is not held. Figures for whether Anti-Semitism was a motivation of other offences that have been prosecuted is not held centrally and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
