On Sunday, Iain McNicol announced that the Del Singh memorial award for campaigning was being awarded to the Jewish Labour Movement. In a dramatic move on Monday, the family of the late Mr Singh has demanded the revocation of the award and an apology from the Labour Party:
Mr Singh, a Labour MEP, was killed in Kabul, Afghanistan in early 2014 and his family instituted the award in his memory.
It is not yet known who made the decision to make the award to JLM, whether Mr McNicol played a part in it, or whether Labour will act as requested by Mr Singh’s family.
