Mick ('the miner') Davis (1958-), born in South Africa but now living in Britain, is a leading figure in the UK Jewish community (chairman of United Jewish Israel Appeal) and one of the funders of Pargav Ltd., the company which paid more than £140,000 towards Adam Werritty's first class flights and five star hotels.

In June 2011, Davis was among a delegation that included Poju Zabludowicz, the chairman of BICOM, which met the UK foreign secretary William Hague to discuss the impact of the Arab spring on Israel. In 2010 Davis was at the centre of a fierce controversy within the UK Jewish community after he made highly critical remarks about the Israeli government.
