[07 OCT 98] COVENTRY CATHEDRAL PRESS RELEASE
Cabinet Minister At City Hunger Lunch

The Rt Hon Clare Short, Secretary of State for International Development, will be visiting Coventry on Sunday 11 October 1998. She will be addressing the Cathedral congregation at the 10.30am Eucharist, and will then be going on to speak at the City of Coventry Hunger Lunch.

The Lord Mayor, Cllr Mrs Maggie Rosher, will chair the Hunger Lunch which is being held at St Mary’s Guildhall, as has been the case for the past few years. The Lunch aims to raise awareness of the problems facing many Third World Countries but there will be a retiring collection for the World Development Movement.

The Department for International Development is a new ministry, created after the 1997 General Election. It promotes policies for sustainable development and the elimination of poverty, and manages Britain’s programme of assistance to developing countries.

It is perhaps of great relevance that Ms Short will be coming to speak after Coventry Cathedral has hosted the Christian Aid ‘Body of Chains’, representing those in the Third World enslaved by foreign debt.
