Statement in response to article published by Media Wales

August 17th 2016

In response to the article ‘Bevan Foundation founder challenges Owen Smith over Pfizer connection’ by Martin Shipton published on 16th August 2016 by WalesOnline, Western Mail and other Media Wales publications, the Bevan Foundation wishes to make clear that Mr Paul Starling’s employment by the Bevan Foundation ended in 2001. Since leaving this post, Mr Starling has had no role in the Bevan Foundation and his comments have absolutely no connection to the Bevan Foundation.

The Bevan Foundation is a registered charity, and is independent of all political parties. It has no views about the Labour Leadership contest or the leadership or politicians of any political party. The Bevan Foundation’s statement on independence and neutrality can be viewed here.
