Death of Founding Co-Chair of BIPA, Lord Peter Temple-Morris

The British Irish Parliamentary Assembly (BIPA) has today expressed its deepest condolences on the death of Lord Peter Temple-Morris, a founding Co-Chair of the Assembly.

The Irish and UK Co-Chairs, Seán Crowe TD and Andrew Rosindell MP, have issued a joint statement on behalf of the Assembly saying, “It is with deep regret that we hear of the passing of Lord Peter Temple Morris. Playing a vital role in the establishment of the British Irish Parliamentary Assembly in 1990, he recognised that in the difficult times of the Troubles, the way forward was dialogue. As first UK Co-Chair, he helped foster closer relations between our Parliaments and enabled us to look at the issues facing our islands together. We aim to continue his work and to ensure that all Parliaments and Assemblies in the UK and Ireland work for closer understanding. Peter was a dedicated and much-respected politician, and our thoughts are with his family.”
