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.”
