Co-operative MP Seconds the Queens Speech

Thursday, December 2, 2004

Co-operative and Labour MP Meg Munn was given the honour of seconding this years Queen’s Speech in the House of Commons. In a packed Commons chamber Meg praised her Sheffield Heeley constituency and spoke of her involvement with the Co-operative movement - recycling Lord (Ted) Grahams joke; “it’s not very co-operative, nor does it move a lot”. She swiftly brought things up to date, reporting the positive upswing experienced by the movement in recent years in the retail sector, and the growth of interest in the ideas of co-operation and mutuality

 

Meg went on to provide the House with funny stories of her time as an MP. She had the House in laughter as she observed that she had recently covered for the Minister for Children, Margaret Hodge, as she was ‘otherwise tied up’. This being a reference to an incident where the Minister had been handcuffed by a ‘Fathers for Justice’ activist.

 

The Prime Minister praised Meg’s speech, and commented on the work of her mother Lillian, and of her late father Reg, a former Sheffield Lord Mayor and active member of the Co-operative Party for many years.

 

The speech is available on the internet, go to www.parliament.uk then click on ‘Hansard’ and go to the 23rd November report.
