Ivan Lawrence

Avocatus Diaboli

LIKE A BAD PENNY, the name of Ivan Lawrence, now a Queen's Counsel and leading light in the Board of Deputies of British Jews, has turned up in the campaign of more or less legal violence used to intimidate and harass British writer David Irving.



  • EVERY subject now has the statutory right under the Data Protection Act, 1984, to give the Board of Deputies and the Community Security Trust forty days' notice in writing to provide copies of all data maintained by the Board on them, and to require the Board to make such corrections as the subject concerned may require.
    Subjects who suspect that they are being victimised should write in the first instance by Recorded Mail to the Research Unit, Board of Deputies of British Jews (and/or Community Security Trust) marking their letter for the attention of Michael Whine, Director, Research Unit, Commonwealth House, 1 - 19 New Oxford Street, London WC1A 1NF. If the Board refuses to give satisfaction within forty days, the subject should then complain in writing to the
    Registrar of the Data Protection Agency, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF; the agency has statutory powers to search and seize databases in the event of non compliance with the Act.
