At the House of Commons Terrace, Tues 14th of June
Over a hundred QUAL members and guests, MPs and parliamentarians came together on a sunny summer evening to celebrate their shared association with Queen’s. Our host for the evening Dr Alasdair McDonnell MP welcomed everyone, thanked the alumni for their great work for the Association and the University and encouraged them to engage with politicians positively to help shape solutions to some of the challenges facing Northern Ireland. New members and old mingled and swapped stories and no doubt discovered many historical connections and acquaintances. A number of alumni joined guided tours of this iconic building and got the unique opportunity to stand on the floor of the House of Commons and enjoy the view from the Government dispatch box. The House was in recess of course!
