MPs champion red rose county

By Tom Moseley

DUP MPs William McCrea and David Simpson are always quick to champion their constituencies here at Westminster. But they are also happy to sing the praises of other areas.

The duo have signed an early day motion extolling the virtues of Lancashire and calling on the Commons to commemorate Lancashire Day as the day the red rose county first sent representatives to Westminster, back in 1295.

The other signatories represent Lancashire constituencies.
