Cabinet Minister backs book bid

Miliband to press for Jarrow exhibition.

South Shields Mp and Environment Secretary David Miliband has contacted the Corner Shop expressing his continued support for efforts to exhibit the Lindisfarne Gospels in the North East. David agrees that St. Paul's Church in Jarrow is an appropriate option to consider, he said:

"Many thanks for your email regarding the Lindisfarne Gospels.
I have written to the Rt Hon Tessa Jowell MP, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, to see if all organisations concerned can work together to bring this important piece of history to the North East for local people to see at an exhibition (I will suggest St Paul's as a local in my letter to Mrs Jowell).

I will contact you again as soon as I receive a reply."

If you, or your friends in the North-East, agree that this is the right and correct action to take in order to see these historic artefacts displayed in their rightful place, then PLEASE take a few minutes to write or email your MP, and urge him/her to support the proposal.

You can find your MP's email address - here
