Statement from LEP Network Chair, Mark Bretton

Her Majesty  Queen Elizabeth II

Mark Bretton, LEP Network Chair, said:

“We all learnt with great sadness of the passing of Her Majesty the Queen. 

"In our own way we are all public servants and there can be no greater icon for us than the Queen who gave her whole life to the service of the United Kingdom and The Commonwealth.

"On behalf of the LEP Community we extend our condolences to the Royal Family; may the Queen rest in peace. God save the King!”

Confirmation of the date and time of the State Funeral will be made by the Royal Household and all further information will be provided on the Royal website and GOV.UK.
