Jeremy Corbyn will be quizzed by MPs on Monday over anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

The Labour leader was attacked by Jewish leaders for appearing to link Israel and Islamic State during a press conference on last week.

One of his own MPs, Ruth Smeeth, also said the party was not a safe place for Jews after Mr Corbyn failed to intervene was she was verbally abused at the event, which was held to launch the findings of a report on anti-Semitism and racism.

The review had been sparked by a row over alleged racist remarks that led to the suspension of high-profile figures like MP Naz Shah and former London mayor Ken Livingstone.

Mr Corbyn will appear before the Home Affairs committee to discuss the findings.

Chairman Keith Vaz said: “We have seen a deeply troubling upsurge in anti-Semitic incidents and speech across Britain and Europe in recent times, including within our political discourse.

“It is one of our fundamental British values to stand together and speak out against intolerance and extremism in any and every form, and we particularly expect this from our political parties.

“We are grateful to Jeremy Corbyn for coming to give evidence on his and the Labour Party’s position following the publication of the independent report on anti-Semitism in the party on Thursday. He is the second Westminster Party leader to do so.”
