A  new group of 20 parliamentary officers have been unveiled by the Conservative Friends of Israel.

The group of MPs and peers will be working closely with its parliamentary chairs Stephen Crabb MP and Lord Pickles to argue for Israel in Westminster.

MPs Andrew Percy, Theresa Villiers and John Howell will serve as the CFI’s vice-chairs, with officers including former minister Baroness Altmann, as-well-as MPs Siobhan Baillie, Bob Blackman, Matthew Offord, Christian Wakeford, Nicola Richards and Mary Robinson.

In a joint statement, Stephen Crabb MP,  Lord Pickles, and CFI Honorary President Lord Polak said the group “is delighted to be joined by a strong new team of Parliamentary Officers who represent all corners of the United Kingdom and reflect the Conservative Party’s support for Israel.

“The Conservative Party secured historic results at last year’s election and we are particularly pleased to welcome a number of MP’s from the new ‘Blue Wall’. We look forward to working closely with the group to further strengthen the record-breaking UK-Israel relationship”.
