Vandalism: Cemeteries

Volume 483: debated on Tuesday 18 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice which Jewish cemeteries in England and Wales have been desecrated in the last two years; and if he will make a statement. (235692)

This information is not recorded centrally. However we have been told by the Community Security Trust charity that they received reports of nine incidents of desecration of Jewish cemeteries in the United Kingdom in 2006 and six in 2007. For reasons of security and confidentiality they feel it would be inappropriate to make public details of the sites concerned.
