Wednesday, March 6, 2013 by The Press in Focus

Tony Blair, former prime minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, will deliver a major address, 4 p.m. April 8, Lafayette College, Easton.

Blair's speech is the college's Lives of Liberty Lecture for 2012 - 13.

Blair was prime minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland May 1997 - June 2007. He was leader of Britain's Labor Party (1994 - 2007) and a member of Parliament for Sedgefield, England (1983 - 2007).

During his 10 years as prime minister, Blair is said to have transformed Britain's public services through a program of investment and reform in schools and hospitals, resulting in more children achieving better school results and more people receiving faster access to health care, with improved survival rates for cancer and coronary heart disease.
