An Act of Remembrance was held on Monday in Westminster Hall to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War and remember the Parliamentarians and House staff who sadly lost their lives. It was well attended by Members of both Houses as well as by staff and passers-by. Three wreaths were laid by the Speaker, Lord Speaker, and James Gray in his capacity of Chair of the APPG for Armed Forces. Following an injury sustained last week, Mr Gray arrived on crutches and stated:

“It is extremely important that, as a country, we take time each November to remember those who fought during the World Wars. We must not forget the sacrifice that these soldiers made, and I am extremely proud to have taken part in the Act of Remembrance in Westminster Hall today.”
