§ 23. Mr. John E. Haire
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the will take notice of the increase of anti-Semitism in this country; and institute an inquiry into the growth of Fascist and semi-Fascist societies.
§ Mr. Ede
The activities of these organisations are closely watched, and no special inquiry needs to be instituted for this purpose. Their influence is negligible and it would be an exaggeration of their importance to suggest that their activities have resulted in any significant increase of anti-Semitism.
