Local Tributes to Baroness Margaret Thatcher
11:47am 22nd April 2013
Tributes have been paid to the Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as her funeral takes place in St Paul's Cathedral.
Elizabeth Truss, MP for South West Norfolk said: "South West Norfolk MP and Education Minister Elizabeth Truss said' This is a very sad day for Britain. She was a great Prime Minister as well as being a remarkable person. She illustrated great determination and was not afraid to defend her beliefs. Growing up in the Thatcher years she was a great inspiration to me."
North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb said: "Margaret Thatcher was a hugely significant figure who helped to shape Britain at the end of the 20th century. As Britain’s first female Prime Minister she achieved a great deal. While her politics divide opinion, I think we all recognise her personal commitment, her political ambition, and her lasting impact on the country. My thoughts are with her family."
