Board of Deputies welcomes Government guidance on procurement

The Board of Deputies welcomes the Government’s issuing of new guidance which aims to stop inappropriate procurement boycotts by public authorities.

Chief Executive Gillian Merron said:  “The Board has always argued that boycotts are divisive – they increase feelings of vulnerability in the Jewish community and do nothing to further the cause for peace in the region. Local Government has a crucial role to play in enhancing relationships and co-operation between different communities.”
