Luton Liberal Democrats welcome peerage for Qurban Hussain

November 19, 2010 7:00 PM

Local Liberal Democrats have expressed their delight at the announcement that Councillor Qurban Hussain is to be given a seat on the Liberal Democrat benches in the House of Lords.

Speaking just after the announcement Qurban said;

"It is obviously a great honour to be chosen to represent my home town in the House of Lords."

"Luton has been good to me. It has been a good home for my family, has given me employment and provided my children with first class education. As a local Councillor I have always tried to put something back into Luton and have been able to assist a great many local people with all kinds of issues."

"I now see this appointment as an opportunity to represent Luton in a major national forum. An opportunity to promote Luton's cause and to work for resources to advance Luton's regeneration and to enhance education, employment, training and life chances for young people in our town."

"We are really thrilled at the announcement," says Council Group Leader David Franks.

"Qurban has worked hard, for his constituents in Biscot and for Luton as a whole. He has shown his commitment to the town and will make a contribution to the work of the Liberal Democrats in the House of Lords. He will be Luton's voice in the upper house when it is needed."
