COUNTER POINT

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

At the re­cent Marks &Spencer AGM I took the op­por­tu­nity to ask the head of in­ter­na­tional busi­ness why, while there are M&S branches in the coun­tries sur­round­ing Is­rael, such as Jordan, Egypt, Le­banon and Bahrain, there was no branch in Is­rael — M&S in Tel Aviv closed in 2000.

He replied that it was be­cause M&S could not find an op­er­a­tor in Is­rael able to mar­ket their goods at a high enough stan­dard! Kay Bagon Home­field Road, Radlett, Herts
