The Labour Party has a “serious problem” with anti-Semitism, a senior Labour peer has warned.
Lord Levy told BBC Newsnight he believed anti-Semitism existed across the political divide, but it seemed “more prominent” within Labour.
It follows the party’s decision to suspend MP Naz Shah from the party over comments about Israel on social media, pending an investigation.
Ms Shah has made a “profound apology” in the Commons for her remarks.
The MP for Bradford West has been widely criticised for Facebook posts she made before she became an MP, in which she suggested, among other things, that Israel should be moved to the United States.
