Tribute to Jo Cox MP

Following yesterday’s terrible events the Conservative Friends of International Development would like to pay tribute to Jo Cox MP. As well as being an excellent Member of Parliament representing Birstall constituency, Jo was also a strong advocate of international development. Following her time as Head of Policy at Oxfam, Jo continued to be a great friend and supporter of the international development community and will be remembered with admiration and fondness. Our thoughts and deepest sympathy are with Jo’s loved ones at this time, her husband Brendan and their two young children.
