Keir Starmer – 2022 Comments on Death of Jack Dromey

The comments made by Keir Starmer, the Leader of the Opposition, on 7 January 2022.

The proud son of Irish parents, Jack Dromey dedicated his life to standing up for working people through the Labour movement, becoming Deputy General Secretary of the UK’s largest trade union and then a Labour MP.

From supporting the strike at the Grunwick film processing laboratory, when he met Harriet, through to being elected to represented Birmingham Erdington in 2010, Jack lived his commitment to social justice every day.

Jack was recognised for his determination to stand up for his constituents and he was highly respected and warmly regarded across Parliament.

My thoughts are those of the whole Labour movement are with Harriet, their children and all those who knew and loved Jack.
