British Government Considering New Laws to Combat Anti-semitic Activities

The British Government is considering the enactment of new legislation to prohibit anti-Semitic activities, Home Secretary John Chuter Ede declared today in answer to a question in the House of Commons.

He maintained that “the matter is difficult because a very large number of people of Semitic descent would object to a law specifically aiming for their protection and no one else.” Ede also said that certain types of anti-Semitic excesses are already punishable by law.
