The Member of Parliament for Portsmouth South, Stephen Morgan, said:

“Lord Judd went above and beyond to serve our city and showed incredible dedication to Portsmouth and his constituents.

“This memorial service will be an important opportunity for those he served to pay their respects for his efforts to always speak up for Portsmouth, as well as his wider achievements in public life.

“I hope some of you will be able to join me on Tuesday as we commemorate one of our city’s true greats.”
