WORCESTERSHIRE GETS COMMONS PRIME TIME AFTER QUEEN’S SPEECH

Today Worcestershire MP, Peter Luff, gave the speech moving the Loyal Address from the Commons to the Queen after the State Opening of Parliament.

This is only the second time in a century or more that a Member of Parliament for Worcestershire has done so. The other one was Peter Walker, the MP for Worcester for over thirty years, who did so in 1991.

In his speech Peter talked about Worcestershire and his time in Parliament. He included memories from his time as Chairman of two Select Committees and Minister for Defence Equipment, Support and Technology. He also talked about the armed forces, engineering skills and the challenges presently facing our country.
