Miliband to speak in Glasgow

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community Life -

FOR­EIGN SEC­RE­TARY David Miliband has agreed to ad­dress the Glasgow Jewish com­mu­nity early in 2009.

The meet­ing will be held un­der the aus­pices of the Glasgow Jewish Ed­u­ca­tion Fo­rum, which says that Mr Miliband was al­ways its first choice among the gov­ern­ment’s heavy-hit­ters.

Lo­cal and MP and Min­is­ter for Europe Jim Mur­phy was piv­otal in ar­rang­ing the speaker and will chair the meet­ing, for which a date has not yet been set.

Mr Mur­phy said: “Through my work with the com­mu­nity for over 10 years, I am fully aware of the is­sues that con­cern you and I can prom­ise that the For­eign Sec­re­tary will ad­dress them.”
