Statement by Chris Holley OBE, Leader of the Opposition on Swansea Council, responding to the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.


On behalf of the Swansea & Gower Liberal Democrats, and I am sure in accordance with the views of all the people of Swansea, I offer my heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family following the extremely sad news of the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

Throughout her long reign, Queen Elizabeth was an exemplar of public service. She dedicated herself to the leadership of our nation and performed her duties with stoicism, dignity, and grace. She visited Swansea several times during her reign, and it was my great privilege to welcome her to re-open the leisure centre in 2008. Our whole city mourns her passing.
