Falklands 40: Portsmouth MP statement

Commenting on the 40th anniversary of the end of the Falklands War, Portsmouth South MP, Stephen Morgan, said:

Portsmouth South MP, Stephen Morgan, said:

“Forty years on from the end of the Falklands war, we reflect on the incredible efforts and sacrifices made by our city to protect British civilians overseas.

“From the dock workers who prepared the South Atlantic Task Force at speed, to the service personnel who both risked and sadly gave their lives to defend Britons, we all owe them an incredible debt.

“It’s so important people across Portsmouth and the country take part in commemorations to take the opportunity to reflect and pay their respects.

“I’m continuing to support local Falklands veterans and their families to secure the support they need, during a period which can be difficult for so many. We are forever grateful for their heroic efforts.

“On the 40th anniversary of the war’s end, we pay tribute to them all and honour the memory of those who did not return home.”
