Statement from Kevin Foster MP following confirmation HM The Queen passed away at Balmoral this afternoon:
“Her Majesty’s reign was exceptional not just for its length, but for the depth of commitment to our nation she showed throughout. For over seven decades she fulfilled the pledge she made in 1947 to devote her whole life to public service, continuing to fulfil her duties until the very end. Like many in Torbay I had lived my whole life with her as the constant in our public life, with her visits to our bay fondly remembered by many who were able to be part of them. ”
“My thoughts and prayers are with the King and his family at this difficult time.”
God Save The King.
