The full transcript is below:

"I want to wish Jewish communities, within Britain and around the world, a happy and peaceful Passover.

"This is a time when families and friends gather round the Seder table to remember the struggles of the Jewish people to secure their freedom. Every year, they tell this story to their children so it is never forgotten.

"And what this ancient journey shows us is the enduring power of people to overcome even the greatest of adversity and build a better future together. And, during this celebration, we’re reminded of all those people still suffering oppression, because of their religious beliefs, race or creed.

"That cannot be right and Passover is a chance for all of us to commit ourselves again to helping those - of all faiths and none - who face persecution around the world.

"It’s also an opportunity for us to recognise the contribution Britain’s Jewish communities make to every area of our society.

"Thank you and Chag Sameach."
