VETERAN politician Baroness Shirley Williams is to give the third annual Harold Wilson Lecture at Huddersfield University.

She is coming on April 26 to give a talk called Human Rights: A New Religion?

The lectures - open to the public - are aimed at exploring social or ethical issues.

Baroness Williams, former Liberal Democrat leader in the House of Lords, was one of the original Gang of Four who broke from Labour to form the Social Democratic Party in 1981.

Her lecture is organised jointly by the university and the Church of England's Wakefield diocese.
