Portsmouth MP calls for nominations for his Parliamentary Remembrance tribute

By 16 October 2023No Comments

Stephen Morgan MP is calling for constituents to get in touch and offer their suggestions for the third year of his Remembrance tribute in Parliament.

Working alongside the Royal British Legion (RBL) the Speaker of House of Commons has again arranged for a House of Commons ‘Constituency Garden of Remembrance’ to be installed to mark this year’s remembrance commemorations.

All 650 Members of Parliament have been invited by the Speaker to plant their Remembrance tributes in New Palace Yard, ensuring every constituency in the country can be represented and remembered in a single place.

Suggestions for the remembrance tribute can be to an individual, regiment or community that has a connection with Mr Morgan’s constituency of Portsmouth South.

Nominations should be sent via email and by no later than Friday 3 November 2022.

The Portsmouth MP will be planting his tribute on behalf of constituents in the run up to Armistice Day.

Ahead of the Remembrance tribute, commenting Portsmouth MP Stephen Morgan said:

“As a Portsmouth MP, I know how important it is for communities that we honour those who served our country to defend our freedoms. Remembrance is a special time in Portsmouth and across the country, bringing with it an opportunity to shed light on the unique and unheard stories about the services and sacrifices made to keep us safe.

I welcome the opportunity to play my role in doing so up in Parliament, with the third year of this thoughtful initiative by the Legion and Speaker of the House of Commons.

I look forward to receiving many suggestions from constituents for who they think Portsmouth should honour and remember this year.”

Suggestions for consideration by the city MP should be emailed to by no later than 5pm on Friday 3 November.
