MPs rejoiced in the Commons as Boris Johnson announced that the Queen had agreed to grant the city of Essex “city status that is clearly deserving”.

Major tribute to Sir David, Mr Johnson Said that the MP for Southend West had lobbied him several times for the area he represented to be upgraded from a city.

He bid for Southend’s city status as part of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations the following year.

Mr Johnson emphasized his campaign, highlighting Sir David’s parliamentary work.

He joked that among “many reasons” Sir David had given his town the status of holding the record for playing the most triangles played by a resident at a time and that a foreign dignitary claimed that he was at Claythorps. More like Southend than.

Mr Johnson told MPs: “Since Sir David last laid the matter for me in this Chamber, I am pleased to announce that Her Majesty has agreed that Southend will be granted city status, Which he clearly deserves.”

“Sir David spent almost 40 years in this House, but not a single day in ministerial office, it all tells where his priorities lie.”

Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer said: “It is a fitting tribute to Sir David’s hard work.”
