The Board of Deputies of British Jews will seek a meeting with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko to discuss the position of Soviet Jewry, a spokesman for the Board disclosed today. Mr. Gromyko is scheduled to visit London on his return from the UN General Assembly’s 25th anniversary session in New York. The spokesman said that demonstrations protesting the treatment of Soviet Jews will take place here during Mr. Gromyko’s visit. He said there would be a peaceful protest march from a synagogue in central London to the Soviet Embassy on the evening of Oct. 28.
