Conservative Party in England Against Ban on Jews in Clubs

Download PDF for this date

Sir Stephen Pierssene, director general of the central office of the Conservative Party of Britain, this week-end spoke out against the exclusion of Jews from membership in the Conservative Club of St. Anne’s, a British resort town. The club has admitted that it refuses to accept Jews as members.

Sir Stephen declared: “The Conservative Party has always set its face strongly against religious discrimination in any form and will continue to discourage any such tendency. The Conservative Clubs, however, are independent bodies over which party headquarters has no control.”
