He served there with sufficient distinction and accomplishment that even after leaving active politics, as we know, he served as a distinguished ambassador and I want to join in expressing condolences to his family,” Mr. Golding said.Of former Member of Parliament, Colonel Leslie Lloyd, the Prime Minister said that he had many personal reflections of Col Lloyd as they were members of the same family .Mr. Golding also boarded at his home while attending high school.“He was one of three people who have been members of this House defending different parties… He was someone who held strong views that defied party affiliation or friendship and he was never unwilling to defend those views even if he stood alone. So he was somebody of courage and of conviction even though there were many issues where he and I disagreed…I want to express condolences to Yolande and Eddy and all his family and friends”, Mr. Golding said.Colonel Lloyd was a Member of Parliament for East Central St Andrew and then for Central Kingston. He was a former officer in the Jamaica Defence Force.Mr. Golding said that both former Members of Parliament served the public well.center_img Advertisements RelatedThey served well?
