The Members’ Tea Room at the House of Commons will be renamed ‘Julie’s Tea Room’ in honour of a popular member of the parliamentary catering team, Julia Clifford, who passed away recently after contracting Covid-19.
Earlier this week in a statement made prior to parliamentary questions, Speaker of the House Sir Lindsay Hoyle led a tribute to “friend and colleague” Julia Clifford. Describing Clifford as “a hardworking and popular member of the parliamentary family”.
Following the Speaker’s statement, housing secretary Robert Jenrick asked that he, and all on the government benches, be associated with Sir Lindsay’s remarks and passed on his deepest respects to Clifford’s family: “We are all very saddened to hear of her death. As you said, service to this House comes in many forms and few have served it as well as she has.”
It is good to see that Julia Clifford was remembered so fondly for her work in hospitality. Further details of her contribution to the House of Commons, and further tributes can be seen in The House.
