FOI request (FOI-81355514)
Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IRHA)
Requested Thu 12 July 2018
Responded Tue 17 July 2018
124 local authorities have adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IRHA) definition of Anti-Semitism. From browsing the Hastings Borough Council website, I have been unable to ascertain whether HBC are one of those local authorities.
I did, however, find the following Freedom of Information request dated 1 September 2017: https://www.hastings.gov.uk/my-council/freedom-of-information/date/?id=FOI221866
Could you therefore please confirm the following:
1. That the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government wrote to Cllr Peter Chowney in January 2017 regarding the (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism.
2. That Hastings Borough Council has adopted this definition.
3. That the decision to adopt the definition was publicised, and, if so, please provide a link to where.
4. If the definition was not adopted, why it was not and whether Cllr Chowney responded to the Secretary of State.
Hastings Borough Council did not receive a letter from the Secretary of State in January 2017 regarding (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism.
Hastings Borough Council has not adopted this definition.
