In this tweet, Stephen Canning, a representative of Bocking, Essex is claiming that 25 Jewish applicants had their membership request into Labour pended dependent upon a home visit.
STAGGERING: If you’re a Jew and want to become a Labour member in Tottenham constituency, you have to agree to a home visit - something prospective members of other religions do not have to do... #GE2019
This account was based upon one respondent's reporting in this claim. Is this true?
23.1 One respondent reports that the membership secretary in the South Tottenham constituency objected to 25 applications for membership from the ultra-orthodox Jewish community, and required home visits to these prospective members' houses. This was not a requirement for other prospective members and appears to have been direct discrimination against Jewish applicants for membership. (57)

There is no Appendix 4 in the leaked report.
The statement by Mr. Canning claiming
If you’re a Jew and want to become a Labour member in Tottenham constituency, you have to agree to a home visit
does not appear to be true. Even if the allegations above are true, it does not appear to be an official policy of the British Labour party, or even of the South Tottenham Labour Party, but instead a discriminatory act by a single member of the South Tottenham Labour Party.
