Labour is currently unveiling a number of proposed measures in its "race and faith manifesto", including:

    Changing the law to include attacks on places of worship as a specific aggravated offence

    Working with social media firms to combat the rise of anti-Semitism online

    An independent review into the threat of far-right extremism and how to tackle it*

    Reviewing the national curriculum to ensure it teaches about racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, xenophobia and black history, and to continue education about the Holocaust

    Ensuring coroners services meet the needs of faith communities, with "out of hours" services to ensure quick burials when required, allowing some Jewish and Muslim families to bury loved ones in accordance with their religious practice



*Note the absence of an independent review into the threat of far-left extremism and how to tackle it........any guesses as to why?
