Newspaper Conference Lunch With Ed Davey

The Newspaper Conference is hosting a lunch with Ed Davey, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, on 8 January.

Mr Davey will address London-based regional press political journalists at the event in central London which will be chaired by Annabelle Dickson, political editor, Archant Anglia.

The Conference holds a series of lunches throughout the year. Chancellor George Osborne was the guest speaker at the annual lunch in November at which he spoke at length about the importance of a free press. 

“There are battles to be fought but a free and vibrant fearless press is the bulwark against an over mighty state and it’s a protector of the liberties of the citizen and of the resources of the citizen as well,” Mr Osborne told guests.

The News Media Association provides a secretariat service for the Newspaper Conference.
