Letter to the Leader of Haringey Council on anti-Semitism within Haringey Labour

Following the release of the EHRC report into anti-Semitism within the Labour Party, the Lib Dem Leader of the Opposition in Haringey, Cllr Luke Cawley-Harrison asked the Leader of Haringey Council if he accepted the EHRC's findings and agreed with Keir Starmer's comments on the report, and cited specific examples from within the Haringey Labour Council Group of comments that the both the EHRC Report and the Leader of the Labour Party have indicated are unacceptable.
