15 April 2022

It is with sadness that we learn of the death of Charles Henry Plumb,  Lord Plumbwhich occurred on 15 April 2022.

Lord Plumb was a Member of the Honorary Committee of our Association.

A Conservative politician, he was the only British President of the European Parliament from 1987 to 1989.

I cooperated with him notably when he was the President of the EU-ACP Joint Assembly and when I was President of the EU-ACP Follow-up Committee of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC). He was a tireless advocate of development aid to Africa, and was very sensitive to the issue of education.

I remember a man with a generous heart, very pro-European!

The Jean Monnet Association pays an emotional tribute to him and sends its sincere condolences to his family
