The Queens Speech 2002

The only time I gave a speech to an entirely packed House of Commons was when I had the honour of seconding the Queens speech. Half of the cabinet wrote to me to tell me it was a great speech, and at the risk of sounding like a megalomaniac I wouldn't disagree...

Ms Oona King (Bethnal Green and Bow): I second the motion. It is a particular pleasure to follow my right hon. Friend the Member for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley (Mr. Foulkes). 

Tony Worthington (Clydebank and Milngavie): Well said.

Ms King: I was coming to that. I have taken some time in preparing my speech, most of it spent practising saying the name of my right hon. Friend's constituency.
