In Memoriam: The Right Honourable, The Baroness Boothroyd OM PC (1929 -2023)

Baroness Boothroyd (Betty) will always be remembered not only as an inspirational politician, but also as a kind, sharp, witty, and formidable woman; the first woman to become Speaker in the United Kingdom’s parliamentary history.  See below for the link to her letter of support for the John Hampden Society.
