AGSM Palace of Westminster Dinner
Tuesday 5th November 2013 in the Strangers Room
Hosted by Barry Sheerman MP
Over 70 members of the AGSM, MPs, Parliamentary staff and members of the CORGI Technical Services team were greeted by Barry Sheerman MP on Tuesday 5th November in the Strangers Dining Room at the Palace of Westminster for the AGSM Reception.
“Bringing together the AGSM and other Gas Safety organisations to work towards gas safety is a very good thing,” commented Barry. “CORGI Technical Services and I are very old friends and I am very pleased to see the good work that they are doing. Reducing accidents and deaths in gas incidents can only be tackled by working together. Often the passion for awareness and campaigning comes from families who have been directly affected by tragedies, but it is down to us to make changes happen. By working in partnership we can make change happen.”
