THE RIGHT HON. LORD MICHAEL MARTIN OF SPRINGBURN AND PORT DUNDAS
EDM #1214
Tabled 30 April 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House expresses its deep regret and sadness at the death of the right hon. Lord Michael Martin of Springburn and Port Dundas; recognises that Michael had diligently represented the communities in the north-east of Glasgow as a Councillor and hon. Member for over three decades, spanning seven general elections; notes that he was a decent and compassionate man who rose from Springburn sheet metal worker to become the first Roman Catholic Speaker of the House of Commons since the Reformation, and the first working-class trade unionist to serve in the Chair of the Commons; and believes his life to be testament that ordinary citizens can reach the highest offices of state through hard work and commitment to the representation of the people.
