Farewell to Sir Nicholas Winterton MP
A dinner was hosted by the Falkland Islands Government at the House of Commons on 24 February, to say farewell to Sir Nicholas Winterton MP, as Chairman of the UK Falkland Islands All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG), a post he has held since 1997. Sir Nicholas retires from Parliament at the next general election after serving 39 years as an MP. He was a founding member of the APPG in 1981, and a staunch supporter of the Islands, which he visited twice, firstly in 1990, and then again for the 25th Anniversary commemorations in 2007. Sukey Cameron MBE, Falkland Islands Government Representative, hosted the dinner and presented Sir Nicholas with a painting of Stanley.
