Shadow International Development Secretary Mary Creagh MP will be in Cambridge this Thursday (March 5th) to deliver a major lecture outlining some of the key principles that will inform Labour’s development policies in Government if the party is successful in the General Election in a few weeks time.
Ms Creagh has been invited by Cambridge Labour Parliamentary Candidate Daniel Zeichner:
Ms Creagh says: “I am delighted that Daniel has invited me to Cambridge to set out Labour’s ideas for the future of international aid and development. I know many people in Cambridge see helping the world’s poorest as a priority for the next Government and Labour wants to build on the UK’s proud record tackling poverty and promoting human rights
Daniel Zeichner added: “Cambridge has a highly-informed and interested audience for global issues, and I’m pleased that Mary has agreed to set out Labour’s priorities for Government in our city. Labour has a strong and proud record on international development: in a rapidly changing world we need to find new ways to tackle global poverty and inequality; promote the rights of women and girls; and improve global employment conditions. These are the issues that brought me into politics and will
inspire many Cambridge voters.”
Mary Creagh will deliver the lecture at The Old Library, Cambridge Union in the centre of Cambridge on Thursday March 5th at 11am. To register to attend please visit http://www.danielzeichner.co.uk/2015_a_make_or_break_year_for_international_development
