'Labour faces the prospect of its annual conference being overshadowed by another antisemitism row after Chris Williamson announced that he would be speaking at numerous events during the gathering next month.
The controversial Derby North MP is currently suspended from the party over his comments about antisemitism but said he would address members at multiple events during the conference in Brighton.
The fringe events are not organised or authorised by the party but his presence alongside thousands of party members at the conference risks causing a major headache for Labour officials.
The parliamentary chair of the Jewish Labour Movement said his presence would be “inappropriate on every level”, but Mr Williamson said his critics were “mischief-makers” who should “pipe down”.
The MP, a vocal supporter of Jeremy Corbyn, is listed as a speaker at a fringe event on a “green new deal” being hosted by the Gower Initiative for Modern Money Studies. He told The Independent he had also been booked to speak at a number of other events.
Labour said the Gower event was not an official part of the conference. Mr Williamson said he had not yet requested a security pass to the main conference and sources suggested he would not be granted one while he remained suspended. Events at which he is speaking will not be approved or promoted by the party.'
