Jeremy Corbyn to Address Newspaper Conference Annual Lunch

Jeremy Corbyn is to be the guest speaker at the Newspaper Conference annual lunch.

The Labour Party leader will address regional press political editors, editors and senior management from local media publishers at the lunch in January.

The lunch, which will be chaired by Archant group political editor Annabelle Dickson, will be Mr Corbyn’s first address to the lobby in Westminster since being elected leader of the Labour Party.

The Newspaper Conference is made up of Westminster-based regional press political editors who report for titles across the UK.

Communities Secretary Greg Clark addressed the group earlier in the December at one of its quarterly lunches.

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