Lord Hill Receives Standing Ovation in the European Parliament


Lord Hill, the out-going European Commissioner who resigned following the UK’s decision to leave the EU, has received a standing ovation in the European Parliament.

Martin Schulz, the President of the European Parliament, said:

“Maybe I can express a vote of thanks to one person in this room. A person who finds himself in a very difficult situation but has done an excellent job of work. And has taken a great step in the cause of humanity”.
