Jessica Morden Jessica Morden - Labour MP for Newport East, Shadow Deputy Leader of the House of Commons and PPS to Keir Starmer
Having raised the issue in the Commons previously, I’m delighted to see the new UK Parliament exhibit on the Newport Rising in Norman Porch, which you can visit on the main tour route: www.parliament.uk/visiting
Great to hear UK Parliamentary Archives are working with the team at Gwent Archives on further #Chartist exhibits too!
In Newport we are rightly proud of our Chartist history, and we should always commemorate the struggles and sacrifices of the ordinary men and women in the story of British democracy. The Chartists are a key part of that story, and it’s right that they should be recognised in Parliament.
