Humour, poignancy and deeper reflections

From The House, 6:55 pm on 8 August 2017

Departing MPs are given the chance to share their final thoughts with the House in a valedictory speech.

Some are sad, some angry, most are funny, but all are interesting and in the last two weeks of Parliament, 15 MPs will say farewell.  

The Leader of the House Simon Bridges told The House the speeches are a time of goodwill in the debating chamber regardless of party membership.
