The Government could suspend its engagement with the National Union of Students because of antisemitism allegations, the universities minister has said.

Michelle Donelan said she is “deeply concerned by antisemitism within the NUS”, and added she is considering reporting the union to the Charity Commission.

Her comments came as the Government’s antisemitism adviser, Lord Mann, called for action over “escalating revelations about the continuing poor treatment of Jewish students and the lack of leadership on anti-Jewish racism from the union”, The Times reported.
