Dame Margaret Hodge says the last five years have been “difficult, long and lonely”, as MPs marked Holocaust Memorial Day with a debate in the House of Commons.

The Labour MP, who is Jewish, has been a vocal critic of former Jeremy Corbyn’s handling of antisemitism in the Labour Party.

Dame Margaret says she believes that Corbyn’s successor, Sir Keir Starmer, is restoring confidence in the Jewish community by “demonstrating zero tolerance of Jew hate”.
