Tristan represented at ceremony outside Parliament

Commonwealth Day commemorated in London

Report and photo from Tristan Government UK Representative Chris Carnegy

On Monday 14th March 2022, I caught up with Amanda Milling MP, the minister for the Overseas Territories.

The occasion was a reception to mark the start of Commonwealth Day. 2022 is a special year; with the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, and the Commonwealth Games coming to the UK, and the day began with a flag-raising ceremony outside Parliament.

It is hoped the minister will hold talks with Tristan's Head of Fisheries and current Chief Islander James Glass during his forthcoming trip to the UK. The encounter brought a chance to propose their meeting.
