Service Widows



Bob Stewart MP led a group of service widows and their children on a visit around Parliament today. They were given tours of both the House of Commons and Lords. Following an audience with Prime Minister David Cameron in his private office, lunch was served with the Speaker of the House of Commons in his private apartments, were he paid tribute to our armed forces.

The visit was organised by the charity Forces Children's Trust. The Trust is a charity devoted to helping dependent children who have lost a parent whilst serving with the Armed Forces. Chairman Denny Wise accompanied the group on their tour.

Bob Stewart MP said 'I was delighted to spend the day hosting the widows and children at Parliament. They have all made a tremendous sacrifice and it is right that that Parliament recognises this'.
