Speaker’s Statement

Volume 697: debated on Wednesday 16 June 2021

She was doing what so many of us do as constituency MPs, and that made her death more shocking to us all. May I, on behalf of the whole House, express our sympathy with her family, friends and colleagues on this sad anniversary? We will never forget Jo or her legacy. We remember her wise words: that we have

“far more in common than that which divides us.”—[Official Report, 3 June 2015; Vol. 596, c. 675.]
