A CON­FER­ENCE SKETCH DRAWS A RE­PLY

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment & Analysis -

It is a shame that your Con­ser­va­tive Party con­fer­ence sketch ( JC, Oc­to­ber 3) did not ac­cu­rately re­flect the true na­ture of Con­ser­va­tive Friends of Is­rael (CFI) con­fer­ence ac­tiv­i­ties.

CFI held a suc­cess­ful fringe meet­ing at­tended by Michael Gove, the Is­raeli am­bas­sador, and 250 del­e­gates. We also held a lunch for se­nior Con­ser­va­tives which was at­tended by over 100 peo­ple, at which the guest speaker was Shadow Se­cu­rity Min­is­ter Baroness Pauline Neville-Jones.

What dis­tin­guishes CFI is that we have strong sup­port from all sec­tions of the party, par­tic­u­larly from the grass­roots. Our strength is in depth as well as breadth. Richard Har­ring­ton Chair­man, Con­ser­va­tive Friends of Is­rael
