Boris Johnson has said universities have been tolerant of casual or systematic anti-semitism for too long.

The Prime Minister was responding to questions during PMQs when Conservative MP Andrew Percy raised the issue.

The Tory MP who is also Chair of the APPG on Surrogacy and Vice-Chair of the APPG Against Antisemitism said: “We heard from Jewish students recently who are suffering record anti-Semitic attacks on university campuses, including allegations of them being marked down by their own professors.

“Instead of helping their students, the NUS has been inviting somebody who has been engaged in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, to a conference.”
