Parliamentary Wreaths: Use of the Portcullis


The Speaker has ruled that Members may use the Crowned Portcullis symbol on wreaths they buy to lay at Remembrance Sunday ceremonies in their capacity as a Member of Parliament.

The wreath should not be in any way party political: the use of the Portcullis on wreaths on behalf of a constituency association or including any party political symbol is not permitted.

Members can obtain an electronic copy of the Crowned Portcullis for this purpose from Nick Battley, in Print Services (by email or on x6208).

The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal office are able to provide the wreaths if Members wish to order through them.They can be contacted on 01622 717172 or by sending the form linked to here back to them by the 22nd October.
