PACE President pays tribute to Sir Tony Lloyd

Sir Tony Lloyd

“I am deeply saddened by the loss of Sir Tony Lloyd, who was a distinguished member of our Assembly for more than ten years, and the head of the British delegation here for many of them,” said PACE President Tiny Kox.

“Tony believed sincerely in the values of the Council of Europe, and his quiet and thoughtful work here won the respect and admiration of members from across the Assembly,” said the President.

“He was a great fan of European parliamentarism, and himself represented the very best of it. He acted invariably from principle, yet sought workable solutions, always with a warmth and dignity which are increasingly rare in politics. We shall miss him.”
