Board of Deputies welcomes introduction of Holocaust Memorial Bill

The Board of Deputies has welcomed the Government’s announcement that the Holocaust Memorial Bill will be introduced to Parliament today.

The Holocaust Memorial Bill, announced by The Prime Minister in January, updates legislation dating back to the Victorian times, removing a statutory obstacle that has previously prevented the building of a new memorial and learning centre in Victoria Tower Gardens in Westminster

The statement reads: “We welcome the Government’s announcement of legislation intended to help construction of the Westminster Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre to proceed. This memorial will be a powerful and important tool in combatting the rising tide of Holocaust Denial and distortion.”
