Cllr Harris’s comments in  were reported to the Conservative Party immediately and, within a few hours, her local party reported that she had been suspended.
The Conservative Party chairman at that time, Brandon Lewis, responded to a question about the incident by noting that Cllr Harris had already been suspended and saying: “…We do not tolerate any form of abuse or racism.”
On 21st March 2019, Cllr Harris made a lengthy public defence of her statements in a letter published by the Leamington Observer in which she stated: “Those comments I made were not anti-Semitic [sic] but deliberately misconstrued by a certain blogger with a questionable agenda,” further adding that “our country is under attack in that we are being undermined by agents of various states, subversives and individuals in our own society…”
The article reported that, following her suspension by the Conservative Party, she had resigned from the district council’s cabinet and remained in post as an Independent councillor.
On 2nd May 2020, Ms Harris stood for election as an independent councillor for Harbury ward and was duly elected. The Conservative Party did not put up a candidate for the election.
On 13th December 2019, Cllr Harris announced that, following an investigation by the Conservative Party, the complaint against her had been rejected and that she could be reinstated.
On 18th December 2019, the rejection of the complaint against her and the lifting of her suspension was reported, and Cllr Harris was quoted as saying: “The issue came about by sheer ignorance and hate and it was clear manipulation by those who hate the Conservative Party. We live in very vitriolic sad times when people behave like this.”
She is now listed once more as a Conservative councillor.
The Council’s code of conduct provides “…in line with the Localism Act 2011 this code only applies to members when they are carrying out their official duties nevertheless the Council expects its members to uphold high standards of conduct at all times in order to uphold the reputation of the Council and the office to which they have been elected…”
At the time of writing, on 21st August 2020, it is not known whether Stratford-upon-Avon District council has decided to take action against her.
It is not known whether Cllr Harris remains a prospective Conservative parliamentary candidate.
In August 2020, Campaign Against Antisemitism put this matter to both Cllr Harris and the Conservative Party; Cllr Harris did not respond, but the Conservative Party replied that she had been suspended pending an investigation based on the content of the dossier we had sent them.
