David Cameron's assurances on boycotts

    Prime Minister David Cameron has reassured Jewish community leaders of the government’s opposition to boycotts of Israel and determination to protect religious slaughter.

    In a Downing Street meeting last Thursday, Mr Cameron also told members of the Jewish Leadership Council about the government’s position on the Iranian nuclear threat.

    The delegation, which included Board of Deputies president Vivian Wineman and JLC Trustees’ chair Mick Davis, discussed religious freedoms, the Big Society, social care policy and antisemitism in Britain.

    Opening the meeting in the Cabinet room at Downing Street, Mr Cameron said: “I welcome the contribution of the Jewish community to the UK – an enormous amount of contribution in terms of the voluntary sector, in terms of Big Society, in terms of business, in terms of politics, in terms of our national life.

    “The Jewish community has been a model for others to follow in terms of successful integration into the UK.”

    Mr Wineman said after the meeting: “We are grateful to the Prime Minister for his continued engagement with the community on a number of substantive concerns and for his sympathetic responses.”
