House Of Commons Monday 15th March

Dadshouse will be attending an event in the House Of Commons Monday 15th March -

"Black Fatherhood in the 21st Century" - A discussion with Rt Hon David Lammy MP - Monday 15th March 2010, 12.30pm

The Grimond Room, House of Commons

Against the backdrop of an increasingly prominent focus in the media on the role of the family in modern Britain, David Lammy and three guest panelists (TBC) will outline their views on fatherhood in the black community. The event will also screen a number of short films on the issue made by David Lammy and actor Femi Oyeniranon (Star of Kidulthood and Adulthood).

David Lammy MP is currently Minister of State for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and MP for Tottenham. Elected to Parliament in 2000, he has held ministerial positions in the Departments of Health, Constitutional Affairs and Culture, Media and Sport.
