Portsmouth South MP Stephen Morgan will be hosting a special event next month with Lord Frank Judd of Portsea, Labour Peer and former Member of Parliament for Portsmouth West and North constituencies.
The special public event on November 11, will be held at Canoe Lake Tennis Pavilion between 4 and 6pm and will be an informal ‘audience with’, an open discussion and question and answer session.
Lord Frank Judd served as MP for Portsmouth West and North in the 1960s and 70s, served as a minister under Callaghan and Wilson, including Junior Minister for the Royal Navy, and entered the Lords in 1991.
Lord Frank Judd said:
“Having served as an MP in Portsmouth during the 1960s and 70s it is a city I hold fond memories of.
“I know Stephen well and fully supported his campaign to become the first Labour MP in Portsmouth South. He is committed to representing the great city that he was born bred in and I am delighted that he has invited me back on what is a special day in history.
“I look forward to sharing my memories, thoughts and observations on a range of issues and hearing those of the people of Portsmouth.”
Stephen Morgan MP said:
“I am really looking forward to welcoming Lord Judd back to our great city.
Portsmouth is a city that he has a lot of history with, he worked closely with the Royal Navy when he was Junior Minister and did some amazing work as Minister for Overseas Development so there’s lots we can learn from him.
“Frank endorsed my General Election campaign last year and I’d like to show my thanks for that support by inviting him back to Portsmouth this special event.”
