Jessica Morden Jessica Morden - Labour MP for Newport East, Shadow Deputy Leader of the House of Commons and PPS to Keir Starmer
Last Saturday I joined the annual remembrance service for all those from our Merchant Navy who died in the wars. I was honoured to lay a wreath as MP for Newport East and do a reading alongside fellow Newport politicians.
This is the 17th year we’ve remembered those who did such a crucial job in conflict transporting supplies. Well done to all those involved in the Newport Merchant Navy Association who organise this service each year so we never forget their sacrifice.
