This morning (22 February 2022) Hertfordshire County Council officers clarified that a petition regarding supporting a pensions boycott policy aimed at Israel was outside the purview of councils.

In a joint statement, the Board of Deputies, Hertfordshire Jewish Forum and the Jewish Leadership Council said:

“We thank Hertfordshire County Council for continuing to focus on the priorities of local government and rejecting the self-indulgent grandstanding of BDS. The authority has sent a clear signal that the county’s Jewish residents do not have to worry about divisive politics stirring up trouble locally.”
