Volume 609: debated on Wednesday 11 May 2016

[Mr Speaker in the Chair]

I have to tell the House that yesterday, together with other right hon. and hon. Members, I attended upon Her Majesty the Queen to deliver the House’s message of congratulations on her 90th birthday. Her Majesty made the following reply:

“Members of the House of Commons,

I am most grateful to you for your address on the occasion of my ninetieth birthday.

I have been deeply touched by the many messages of congratulations which I have received on this particular birthday and I warmly reciprocate the good wishes of Members of the House of Commons at this time.”
