Pitcher Warming up? Nancy Pelosi Accepts Invitation To Annual G7 Speakers’ Conference In UK: Whats Up With Nancy?
Washington’s House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will visit Chorley later this year, after accepting an invitation from Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle to the annual G7 Speakers’ conference.
Sir Lindsay will host his international counterparts in his constituency in the north west of England for the meeting in September, where protecting parliaments from terrorism is set to be on the agenda.
It comes after the UK hosted the G7 leaders’ summit in Cornwall earlier this month, which saw Boris Johnson welcome US President Joe Biden on his first overseas visit since entering the White House.
Sir Lindsay said: ‘With so many of our parliaments having experience of terrorist attacks and our Members facing threats, abuse and hostility from armchair trolls on social media, now is the time for us to join together to discuss how we can tackle such forces of evil.
‘How do we balance public access to Parliaments as well keeping Members and staff safe?
‘Amid this climate, how do our communities raise their voices and get them heard nationally and internationally on these and other issues? These are all massively important topics for our countries.
‘I look forward to welcoming my counterparts to one of the most beautiful parts of the UK – to the town where I was born and brought up – to Lancashire and the North West.’
Chorley is an historic town where markets have been held every Tuesday, dating back to the 15th century.
