James Brokenshire to return to Parliament after operation
The former Cabinet minister will return to the Commons after ‘recovering strongly’ from a lung operation.
Former Cabinet minister James Brokenshire will return to Parliament on Tuesday after undergoing lung surgery.
Mr Brokenshire quit as Northern Ireland secretary in January on health grounds, revealing he required an operation to remove a lesion on his right lung.
The Old Bexley and Sidcup MP said he had been “recovering strongly” since the procedure and would be back in the Commons when Parliament returns from a recess on Tuesday.
Pleased to say that I’ve been recovering strongly after my lung surgery a month ago. Have had incredible love and support from family and overwhelmed by so many kind emails, letters and messages. Will be back at Westminster when the Commons returns on Tuesday 👍 pic.twitter.com/UbGPKnUlU9— James Brokenshire (@JBrokenshire) February 18, 2018
