THE MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, Michael Lord is to receive his knighthood on Tuesday.

Sir Michael, who is also deputy speaker of the House of Commons, will be going to Buckingham Palace accompanied by his wife Jenny and grown-up children Tim and Sally.

A former rugby blue and currently captain of the parliamentary golfing society, Sir Michael has been an MP since 1983.

He is receiving his knighthood for services to parliament - the only MP to be recognised in this way in the Queen's birthday honours list in June.

He said: "It is a great honour and we are looking forward very much to the occasion."
