Britain's defense secretary and at least three lawmakers have pulled out of speaking engagements at the debating society at Oxford University after the group's president invited David Irving, the historian once jailed in Austria for denying the Holocaust, to speak. Defense Secretary Des Browne and the other officials decided not to speak at the Oxford Union after learning that Irving and the far-right British National Party Leader Nick Griffin had been invited to a forum on free speech. The Free Speech Forum is planned for November 26. Neither Browne nor the other lawmakers were invited to attend that event, but had been scheduled to speak on other days.
