RIP Bruce George (1942-2020)

I would like to pay tribute to my predecessor, Bruce George, who sadly passed away on February 24, 2020, aged 77. It was an honour to follow Bruce as the MP for Walsall South. Bruce made an important contribution to the life of Walsall and Parliament over 36 years, especially in his work as Chair of the Defence Select Committee and securing the rebuilding of the Manor Hospital. My thoughts are with his wife Lisa at this very difficult time.
