Education Select Committee chair Robert Halfon has written to the Charity Commission calling for a statutory inquiry into the National Union of Students and its trustees over allegations of antisemitism.

The Harlow MP said he was “particularly concerned about antisemitic events that have taken place within the NUS over the past several years and which comes following decades of concerning trends”.

In a dossier, submitted by Halfon alongside the Campaign against Antisemitism charity, it highlighted how “one of the most alarming recent incidents” had involved the rapper and conspiracy theorist Lowkey.
