Original motion text

That this House congratulates Michael Foot on his approaching 89th birthday; recognises his integrity, compassion and decency and his record as an outstanding parliamentarian, journalist, author and, above all, socialist; and believes that a fitting tribute to the former Labour leader would be the commissioning of a statue to be placed within the Palace of Westminster.
