A group of four Members of Parliament from Britain will be visiting the Falkland Islands as guests of FIG from February 11-16, accompanied by Sukey Cameron MBE, from the Falkland Islands Government Office in London.
FIG has been hosting MPs in the Islands for many years, to allow them greater insight into the Islands, and to strengthen the relationship between the Island and the House of Commons, according to a statement from Gilbert House.
This year’s delegates will be:
Chris Matheson MP [L], Member of Parliament for Chester, in the North-west
David Morris MP [C], Member of Parliament for Morecombe & Lunesdale, in the North-west
Guy Opperman MP [C], Member of Parliament for Hexham, in the North-east
Peter Dowd MP [L], Member of Parliament for Bootle, in the North-west.
In addition to meeting with members of the Government and private sector, during their time in the Islands the MPs will have the opportunity to meet children at both schools, as well as travel to Bleaker Island for the night.
