Top politicians plan a memorial fund

POLITICAL and world development leaders from several countries are planning an appeal fund to continue the work of the late Barbara Ward, Baroness Jackson of Lodsvvorth.

The Barbara Ward Fund was announced in a letter to The Times, signed by Lady Jackson's son, Mr Robert Jackson, and 13 others. The letter says that Barbara Ward told family and close friends that she wished to be remembered by a continuation of her work.

It said the fund would be used "for the betterment of the poorer majority of mankind and the preservation of the environment."

Signatories included Mr James Callaghan, Mr Edward Heath, Mrs Shirley Williams, Herr Willy Brandt, chairman of the Commission which produced "North-South, a programme for survival", Mr Robert McNamara, former President of the World Bank, Sir Shridath Ramphal, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth Secretariat, and Mr Pierre Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada.
