Tony Benn, the UK Labour politician who died last week, will be remembered at a meeting and film show organised by the Manx Labour Party.

‘He was a giant of the Labour movement who will be sadly missed,’ said David Carter, Manx Labour Party press officer.

The party is showing the Ken Loach film Spirit of ’45. In it, Mr Benn is interviewed in the film by director Ken Loach about Britain after the 1945 Attlee Labour victory.

‘The film evening will be a social event and an opportunity for anyone who is thinking of joining our party to meet members. But everyone is welcome to come and watch this important film about our social history and the formation of the National Health Service,’ said David Cretney MHK, secretary of the party.

The film is to be shown at 7.30pm in South Douglas Old Friends’ Association, Finch Road, Douglas, on Friday, April 4. Admission is free.

Mr Benn spoke at a meeting at the Gaiety Theatre, Douglas on November 21, 2012.
