The Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:
I would like to send my warmest wishes to Jewish communities in both the UK and around the world, as they prepare to celebrate the festival of Passover. Passover is a joyous occasion on which Jewish families come together to celebrate freedom.
Wishing you all a peaceful and happy holiday. Hag Pesach Sameach.
