Eleanor Laing – 2022 Tribute to HM Queen Elizabeth II

The tribute give by Eleanor Laing, the Deputy Speaker and MP for Epping Forest, in the House of Commons on 9 September 2022.

Before I call the next colleague, I would like to briefly give my own tribute on behalf of the people of Epping Forest, whose voice would otherwise be unheard. Her late Majesty was held so dear in all our hearts for her kindness, cleverness, dedication and grace. As a role model for women of future generations, she was unsurpassed. We have all been so fortunate to live and serve during her reign.
