All-Party Palace of Westminster launch for National Golf Month

April 29th, 2016

This week’s launch of National Golf Month was hosted by the All Party Parliamentary Golf Group and it was good to see that ‘All-Party’ means exactly what it says. In fact the benefits of golf seems to be one of the few things that unites Conservative, Labour and Scottish Nationalist (natch). Even Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn turned up and, as our image shows, has clearly held a putter before. Who knew?
